* written in a child's perspective
* "We must believe the things we teach our children." --W. Wilson
I'm happy to say I'm a kid
I know what King Henry did
I know lots more than my dad
I know what happens when he's mad.
I know why my mom can't cook
Dad says she can't read a recipe book
I know why the lightning is so bright
I know why my mom tucks me in so tight.
I know that my goldfish always dies
Then these big tears fall from my eyes
I know why my cat licks her paws
I know why Moses had a set of laws.
I know how to tie my Nike shoe
I know why my mom says, "I love you!"
I know how to color in the lines
I know why the sun always shines.
I know the difference 'tween girls and boys
Girls like barbies, and boys like toys
I know what soaps for when you've lied
Mom says,"Hold you nose, and open wide."
I know I have to take a bath
I know 2+2=4 in math
I know how to cut my nails all neat
I know never to eat a doggy treat.
All these things will one day help me out
but guns is something they never told me 'bout
Now I sit and hold my friend Anthony
Because no one had the time to sit and talk to me.
