A Cupcake to a Kid

To eat a cupcake like a kid
You have to do as Henry did:
With mouth wide open, bite the place
Where frosting waits to glaze your face.

Repeat ‘til frosting disappears
(Forget the smears on nose and ears)
Then tackle all the cake beneath
(The crumbs of which will coat your teeth).

Let mom and daddy clean the floor,
The chair and all the clothes you wore
While you’re enjoying every bite,
Your face aglow with pure delight.

The grownups all will find it cute
But here’s a truth that’s absolute – 
Such manners are a toddler’s job;
We’d call a teen like that a slob!

    Toddlers get a cute pass don't they? Your charming poem is delightful Ilene. It made me recall our four year olds first birthday. We gave her her own tiny cake and let her have at it while we all laughed and cheered. Thank you for the memory! #7 ; )

    So cute, humorous and truth! You got a chuckle out of a feverish body this evening!
