Poems: Baby Talk

Baby Talk


Where do babies come from, asked her little daughter

   Giving mommy pause

Assuming she had to answer, for that’s what parents oughter

   Describing to a kindergartener

The way of genitals, hormones, organs, and sex

   Assuming she wanted facts

Mom decided instead to listen, turning to ask her next

   Where do you think little brother came from?

Little girl blushed and hummed and smiled, saying

  You pray to God for babies

Giving thus the obvious answer she returned to playing

  Yes, they really do know better
