Out Of The Mouths Of Babes

Out of the mouths of babes Words of wisdom are spoken Don’t make a promise you cannot keep They’ll remind you a promise is broken Despite having little minds I have to date not met A toddler who when given a promise Will simply just forget I’ll say “I’ll play with you tomorrow” The reply “you said that yesterday, So you must come and play with me, Tomorrow is now today” “Grandad, will you play with me” I reply “sorry I haven’t the time” “It’s alright Grandad, I have. It’s almost half past nine” “Sorry Grandad really can’t. Grandad is very tired” That’s when I got my marching orders When told “Grandad, you’re boring, you’re FIRED”
