During that period called “Terrible Twos”
your kids will decide on their own don’ts and dos:
They’ll accuse, they’ll abuse, they will have their own views,
but most and foremost – they will refuse.
-“Dinner?” -“Refuse!” -“Sleep?” -“No, refuse!”
They won’t even put on their own goddamn shoes.
Terrible Twos go away, that’s good news,
but ten plus years later comes a teenager who’s
just as obnoxious and bent on “Refuse!”.
They cover their bodies with little tattoos,
in anger and pimples their lives are infused.
Whatever you do, you are destined to lose.
Parenting sure ain’t no luxury cruise.
