CRYING AT THE CRIB

It's sad to say but we're pathetic today
cuz we're childishly crying at the crib
We're screaming, and shouting
and drooling at the mouth
I swear we all need bibs

Tear stained faces contorted
and grimly unsorted
that mindfully should be 'hid.
Aren't shunned in rooms to rid,
but in plain sight
and "unrightfully" out in the mid

Where ration should be
with raw emotions stand we __
boldly in its stead
To act with restraint would've
actually been noble,
but a tantrum is what we all did

"But Takers are forsakers
and giving to those fakers
can be more than givers can take"!

We are not amusement
for you to play with___
but of those you should not toy or kid
Good riddance to you and
an unhappy farewell
is the one true thing we could bid

Hit the door
for you're neither friend nor foe
but merely unfinished
poorly formed dough

We had good notion to be in high motion
and completely out of rears.
What happened today was uncalled for
and the absurdity of all my years.

I never thought that something of this sort
could bring on such bouts of tears
Yet gracious enough it's limit draws near
as warm thoughts do appear

Out from the wonderful voice of cheer
 and all its other peers

To beckon us__ bring on those smiles
and lift those tight wrinkled chins.
As this day closes and comes to an end
we can't let gloom and sorrows win

But be inclined to bide our time
with better things in mind
So Let us calm our nerves
and think of all that's preserved __
as the crackers
and red wine is served

Alas! we settled us down
and had a second go-round
til we uttered not a sound

What gotten into us
must have gone stir crazy,
or completely out of our heads

To be hooping, hollering,
and galloping like horses
up here crying at the crib.
