Mommy and Daddy

I love my mommy and daddy 

They are so nice to me 

Nicer than my last mommy and daddy 

I’m glad they’re gone 

 

I love my mommy and daddy 

My daddy likes to bring me to work with him 

I like looking at the tools he uses 

And everyone there loves me 

 

I love my mommy and daddy 

But I’m not so sure about my sisters 

They make mommy and daddy play with them 

I wish they played with me more 

 

I love my mommy and daddy 

It makes me sad they they’re sad 

I wish they weren’t 

She’s not worth their sadness 

 

I love my mommy and daddy 

I ran to them when Alice fell 

Flailing, gasping, struggling

Then she stopped 

 

I love my mommy and daddy 

But I do not love Constance 

She keeps getting in the way 

Mommy and daddy say shes special because she can't see very well  

 

I love my mommy and daddy 

They were sad when Constance fell down 

I watched her scream all the way down 

Then she stopped 

 

I love my mommy and daddy 

But now they are always sad 

I don’t understand why 

Now they don’t have to play with anyone else, just me 

 

I love my mommy and daddy 

They play with me even less than they did before 

I just want them to play with me 

If they won’t, I’ll have to find someone else too 

 

I love my mommy and daddy 

Daddy takes me into his shop 

I sit next to the pretty, shiny tools 

They were so pretty I decided to take one 

 

I love my mommy and daddy 

But they won’t play with me

Not at all anymore 

I need a mommy and daddy who will play with me 

 

I love my mommy and daddy 

They are asleep in their bed 

I walk to their room 

My new shiny toy in hand 

 

I love my mommy and daddy 

But they won’t be happy 

I don’t think they ever will be again 

I can use my new toy to fix that 

 

I love my mommy and daddy 

I put my new toy to my mommy’s throat 

Then my daddy’s 

I climb back into my bed, abandoning my new toy 

 

I love my new mommy and daddy 

They play with me all the time 

More than my last mommy and daddy
