raucous with fresh glee
are trailed by their weary parents
(I'm sure some of the parents have regretted
not trying sodomy...)
but I've heard it said children keep you young
maybe for some but I've heard convincing arguments
to the contrary from those who cannot wait
for the wee ones to be down before a fifth of scotch
crowns the travails of the day
oh common misery known to all
this is the condition this is humanity
whose daily prayer is a sustained 'What The Fuck?'
bad off as I am I rejoice that I have no children....
