The Conversation

The Conversation   

By Elton Camp (But inspired by a posting from Henrietta)

 

Trying to talk with a child

It can surely drive one wild

“This isn’t a very good day.

I just have nothing to say.”

 

With a sigh, she rolls her eyes

No need for you to try to advise

Your talk comes far too late

Or is hopelessly out of date

 

To her, there’s not a single doubt

Don’t know what you rant about

With the world, so out of touch

Really, you never knew much

 

Pay-back time for her will come

Only when she’s someone’s mom

Then I can hide a smile

When she is put under trial
