Kids at Work (poem)

Kids at Work

My dad says I’m lazy.
there’s work to do.
No more lollygagging!”
But I’m just two!

“I started late.
When I was one
everything was outlawed
especially fun.”

“I worked from sun up
till it went down
and then 10 chores
when I got home.”

“I washed and cleaned
before I could walk.
I worked in the fields
before I could talk.”

“You think you can sponge
off your mother and me
and just lounge around
until you’re three?!?”
