When Silence Isn't Golden

When Silence Isn’t Golden

By Elton Camp  

Justin is running around screaming
Of silence, his harried mom’s dreaming

Whenever to take a nap she does try
He appears to ask “Why, why, why?”

When baby sister is sleeping very well
Justin then begins to shriek and yell

When the time to cook supper is at hand
Stop that and play with me, he’ll demand

“Justin, can’t you please be quiet a while”
When he’s especially putting her under trial

But if he actually should be silent for a spell
What he is up to there’s nobody who can tell

A toddler’s silence is suspicious as can be
What he is doing, you had better go and see
