Little Brown Baby Comments

Rating: 3.0
Little brown baby wif spa'klin' eyes,
Come to yo' pappy an' set on his knee.
What you been doin', suh -- makin' san' pies?
Look at dat bib -- you's es du'ty ez me.

I heard a reference of this from a preacher from NY. Every since then, it made me think of my nephew, Tyshawn. He was the complete description of this poem. Now I have grandchildren that still remind me of this poem.
