My Son

My son
When just a little chap
in bath he sat and played 
so young and small played with a ball
and sat beside my wife

On looking at her sitting there
with some compassion and despair
He said mummy!
You're not the same as me
did daddy break it off

needless to say
from that day on 
the baths he took were nice and long
but somewhat on his own

    This is humorous and cute. Gives the reader a chuckle from the silliness and innocence of the little boy. Nice job
