Oh, Baby

The baby is crying
sighing
why-ing.

He’s cooing
wooing
pooing.

She’s whining
dining
mine-ing.

We’re holding
kissing
loving.

Oh, baby.

Background Noises

I didn’t know I’d have a backup band
To life
Actually, to doing anything ‘alone.’

I didn’t know I’d have such a choir
All day
When I tried to complete a task.

I didn’t know I’d have constant supervision
Even at night
Where my dream sheep have children chasing them.
