A poem dedicated to parents of children who chatter all the time.
May you get 5 minutes peace.
Dear child, don’t you know
just how much I love you so
but all the questions
on and on
I feel as if my brain has gone
No the sun won’t melt you
yes Superman can fly
but NO! little children can’t so please don’t even try
Yes, I’m making lunch now
no you won’t grow as big as a tree
and I don’t think it’s a good idea to invite a pig to tea
I know you are inquisitive
and it’s answers that you need
and I love that you’ve an enquiring mind
but I can’t wait till you can read.
