PARENTAL ERRORS


Somewhere along the challenging path

between metaphors and reality

my daddy was wrong


While every tub may gotta set

on its own bottom

every person don't gotta


In fact, as best I can tell,

most don't and try not to

preferring illusions of leaning

over realities of standing


But on the other hand

maybe he was right after all

since smarter tubs

obviously do
