the preposterous child

July 17, 2010 § Leave a comment

You there, eyes all aglow and a big grin plastered on your face,

You there, holding your Papa’s hand,

and walking with a… bounce!

People work hard for things that think will give them your happiness,

Athletes pay good money for shoes that give a bounce.

But you!

It’s almost preposterous how happy you are!

Why, child, are you so happy?

I suspect you don’t even need a reason to be!

For you joy simply involves holding your Papa’s hand,

and going for a walk.
