    My son William was an early curser-- had so much soap, he got to LOVE the taste. by the time was 5 yrs old, he wanted to choose the dish soap in the market--so he could have his favorite flavor,,,,kind of defeated the purpose! great look back...

    Oh my, what a rebel your son must have been. You know of course How I enjoy William Blake's poems. I also love to parody them. This is a parody of "The Chimney Sweeper" by William Blake.

    wow! this poem brought back such a vivid memory of my mother washing my brother's mouth out with soap and me (3 years older than my brother) trying to stop her (unsuccessfully). what an awful punishment, but an excellent poem!

    I got my mouth washed out with soap one time as a child. Learned my lesson well. I'm so glad you enjoyed my poem. It is a parody of "The Chimney Sweeper" by William Blake.

    Oooo, Jon... It happened to me when I was 4... I can still remember the humiliation (though not the taste)... it wasn't my parents, but the kindergarden 'teacher' who was so caring... I can't remember what I did, only the punishment... but seen seen through the eyes of someone so pure (the 'teacher') though, I suppose I must have been a very wicked child... Terry (Good poem)
