Rated: E · Poetry · Parenting · #2112356
This was inspired by a friend who has a parenting moment on Valentine's day.
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways
I love thy blowing chunks in the ides of night
a technicolor rainbow of multi-hued light
For each earnest retch and earp, as you eat backwards
I love thee to the extent which you can hurl
In response to that queasy feeling
That consequence of stomach reeling
I love thee grossly, kneeling before the porcelain throne
I love thee surely, and will not rebuke
Though you toss your cookies or loose your lunch
Or upon me bestow your precious puke
Thy lost chime through thy fingers squirt
As you hork and ralph and spew and yak
Tis but a valentine written ‘cross my shirt
