Day 14 of 2012 November PAD challenge.
I’ve been here for an eternity
Practically since I was born
I sleep and I wake here
Every night and morn
These white bars surround me
Even in my dreams
I think I’ll be here forever
At least, that’s how it seems
Although it’s quite comfortable too
I sometimes feel lonely here
Because everyone always leaves me
When I’m inside, they all disappear
I cry and laugh
I squeal and wail
I babble on and on
All to no avail
I am stuck here in this crib
Too little to climb out
I just can’t liberate myself
Growing up is the only way out!

What a great idea! I guess it’s hard for us adults to think of what this early life “behind bars” is like. ha ha
All of mine barely lasted 2 years in their cribs. They all learned to climb out. I swear they will all be mountain climbers.
Thanks. I dread the day when he climbs out. I always think he’s gonna break his neck or something. But somehow, the other two seemed to have figured out a way to keep from dying. Maybe they’re all part monkeys?
I literally lol’d at the ending to this, so clever! I bet that’s exactly how babies feel, poor things.
Thanks. I’ve always wondered what it felt like in there… 😉
