A Grandson’s Plea

Max, 5 asks me curiously
one day:

“Is my dad your son?”

“Yes,” I reply tentatively.

“That means you’re his boss”.

“Yes, in some ways.”

You could clearly see 
the cogs turning
in Max’s head.

“Poppy,” he says, with
great conviction, 

“Tell my dad so LOUDLY
into his ear 
until it BLOWS 
out the back 
of his other ear

& OUT my ears
& OUT mommy’s ears

so we can ALL hear it:
