The Wise Guy - Poem by Esther Leclerc

So, I'm talking to my son - -
not 'at', mind you, with - -
saying, 'Boy, if you hate your job
go ahead and quit.'

Just be sure to do them right
(this being his first job) ...
give them plenty of notice,
don't leave with a 'Bye, Bob! '

First gather applications
for a new position.
Don't plan to play Game Cube for
a month-long 'transition.'

He replied, 'Yeah, Mom, uh huh - -
mumble mumble - - *burp*.'
Said I: 'You're not making SENSE! '
He: 'Okay, but - - *slurp* - -
! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

I'M MAKING DOLLARS! ! ! '

    From the mouths of babes, eh? Ah, kids - they teach us a lot about letting go of control, as you demonstrate superbly in this witty and compassionate piece. Wise Guy indeed. love, Allie xxxxxxxxxxxxx (Report) Reply

    Know something, Esther the aesthetic? In 20 years time Elisha the clever will be writing the same words! (or just venting them to his mother down the phone and asking for her seasoned advice) . Winking at you, Gina. (Report) Reply

    Sounds like they could pay him in food and drink and he'd be happy (and you, too!) . Teenagers are bottomless pits, but full of wise remarks. -chuck (Report) Reply
