Messy Fingers By:  Debra S. Higginbotham

Sticky fingers ‘ tangled hair,
scattered crayons, everywhere.
Fancy artwork ‘ on the wall ‘
drawn by midgets ‘ three feet tall.
Tell me why ‘ and tell me how ‘
that was mine ‘ I want it NOW!
Fix my bike. Buy me gum.
If you have it, I want some.
Dirty faces, grass-stained knees,
learning words ‘ like pretty please.
Endless hugs & goofy wet kisses,
learning respect with ‘Mr.’ & ‘Mrs.’
Scraped-up hands, from falling down.
Tender tugs – – on my night gown.
Need more paper ‘ for Santa’s letter?
I wasn’t so bad ‘ but I’ve been better.
Watching a movie ‘ again and again ‘
Mommy, please ‘ put the tape back in.
Messy fingers ‘ hair gone wild ‘
all in the life ‘ of a precious child !!
