Your Baby Looks Very Interesting

 

Your Baby Looks Very Interesting

 

By Elton Camp

 

It creates such immediate, outrageous lying

A parent who, for a compliment, is trying

 

“Oh, your baby is just as cute as can be.

A finer looking one I never, ever did see”

 

Playing the praise game is the smartest way

However different from what truth would say

 

With outrage the offended parent would roar

Upon hearing accurate words he does abhor

 

“Your baby has a strangely pointed head.

Plus, his skin is mottled and far too red”

 

“His ears are shaped like those of a swine

How can you think that he looks fine?”

 

“His face is what a space alien is about.

Plastic surgery will help, there’s no doubt”

 

“In the meantime, it’s likely, it would seem

Those seeing him will let out a scream”

 

“Having a baby I am certain that you now rue.

But how could you know he’d look like you!”
