It's About Thyme

Perplexed when mother called me to the door
and looked with scowl and doubt at my small hands,
then asked if I had washed them, or once more,
had failed to use the soap and rinse the sands.

When I looked at her and saw her glaring eyes,
then back out to the sandbox where toys sank,
I quickly, in my little mind summ'ized,
that if my hands weren't washed, then I'd get spanked.

My dinner had been ready for some Thyme.
And Mama had already called me in.
And yet I stayed and played as though sublime,
and that's when I remember my first sin.

I lied, Yes Mama, I have washed my hands.
She looked and smiled and I felt I had hope.
I was so happy she did understand,
and scurried to the sink to find some soap.

The kitchen had a smell of apple pie
and Mama, she was standing at the sink.
And so I ran right upstairs to keep the lie
and passing by her, she gave me a wink.

So dinner had avoided reprimands
'til Mama gave my Papa a high sign,
and Papa asked if I had washed my hands.
I nodded, then he shouted, "It's 'bout Thyme!"

Holding so fast by thine infinity;
So surely anchored on
The steadfast rock of immortality." ...Emily Bronte, "Last Lines"

Justin, I have to say you are writing some good stuff here, even though you have me wondering where you got the laptop. You all are gonna have me obsessed in no time at all.
