The Question

The Question

A Poem by karmax

An unanswered question from the mouth of a babe...


I've answered questions

From a seven year olds mouth

Questions on spur of the moment

And then it stumped me, just one comment


Why do birds fly south in winter?

How do you get out a splinter?

Why are clouds so fluffy?

How come my pillows soft and puffy?


Mommy, why is the sky so blue?

How do I tie my shoe?

How much is two dimes and a nickel?

How come we laugh when being tickled?


But one thing I don't know the answer

When asked this question, my mouth it did shut

Mommy, why don't dog's have to wipe there butt?

I like that it was really cute.
They do ask those annoying, neverending questions that you antagonize about at night. I did anyways. Only a mother would understand th is poem. Great job at least there were no questions about the front.
