Son Say Goodnight To Grandpa
“Son”...”say goodnight to grandpa”

as well as other politesse

Childhood Dreams Part 2

Ate noisily 
And snorted quite a lot

Final Lullaby
Final Lullaby
by Michael R. Burch

Sleep peacefully—immune to all distress,
like pebbles unaware of raging waves.

Sleep peacefully—like fields of fragrant clover
unmoved by any motion of the wind.

Everyone Poops
I am playing with my dollies
And my princess pram all pink
I'm nearly 5
A big girl now
No more nappies
Or plastic pants

I outgrew the potty
When I was only three
My mum says it's because I am brave
