A Guide to Babies
THERE'S CERTAIN THINGS, A CONSTANT TRUTH,
THEY'LL CRY, THEY'LL SLEEP, THEY'LL CUT FIRST TOOTH.
AND SLEEP WILL COME, A GENTLE SNORE,
AND WAKE ON INSTANT CLOSE OF DOOR.
NO TIME TO PRIMP, NO TIME TO GROOM,
OR LEAVE THE HOUSE BEFORE IT'S NOON.
AND SO MUCH STUFF, FOR ONE SO SMALL,
DO THEY REALLY NEED IT ALL?
TO GO, NOT REALLY VERY FAR,
YOU'RE GONG TO NEED A BIGGER CAR.
AND DON'T TAKE HEART AT BABY GROUP,
THEY CAN BE A WARY TROUPE,
YOU'LL ALWAYS FND ONE WISER, OLDER,
SHE'LL STILL HAVE MILK STAINS DOWN HER SHOULDER.
ROMANTIC THOUGHTS INSIDE HIS HEAD,
WHILE YOU WILL DREAM OF REST AND BED,
BUT WHO NEEDS SLEEP, A DISTANT FRIEND,
THEY'LL LEARN TO SLUMBER IN THE END.
AND WHEN THEY DO, GREAT JOY! AND THEN,
AT 18 IT STARTS AGAIN.
BUT SOON THOSE DAYS WILL START TO FADE,
WITH ALL THE WORK THAT'S GONE UNPAID,
FOR ALL THE WORLD IS WORTH ONE SMILE,
AND ALL THE CHORES WILL SEEM WORTHWHILE.
ONE THOUGHT HOLDS FAST, ABOVE ALL OTHER,
NO BETTER JOB, THAN BEING A MOTHER.
