Visions Beyond the Horizon The doctor incised the umbilical cord, the nurse held him by heel, They waited; the baby cried not; the nurse nudged and he giggled; The baby giggled again; new mom laughed; doctors just haggled; The new age baby breathed normal; ancient medic annals to heal Had no entries; baby crying on first breath norm, they had a ***** feel; Like POTUS, medics threw up arms, helpless to his tantrum. Cuddled By mom, he slept and giggled, never cried for milk. With heads muddled They fiddled with the issue; he woke up giggling, laughing for family weal; But it was strange, people thought it his harangue; he was deranged, Some claimed. He crawled around sparring worries with laughing queries, And it was strange, people thought. Their frowns chilled the entire loving bond, And in expiation the mom showed the cradle, as they stood like dolls disarranged In Walmart malls, waiting to be billed; the infant spoke, dispelling all their queries And opened their minds; with closed eyes, they saw visions from horizons beyond!
