By its very nature this has to be a free-form poem. Many of us will have had this conversation or something very similar, not only with small children but with rebellious teenagers and even annoying characters you have to sometimes work with.

The music is the brilliant "Problem Child" by Graham Parker and The Rumour from the album "Stick To Me"

Conversation With A Small Child


"Time For Bed"


"Because It's School Tomorrow"


"Because You Have To Be Taught For Your Exams"


"Because It Could Be Good If You Pass Your Exams"


"It Might Help You Get A Job That You Like"


"If You Get A Job You Like, Life Will Be Better"


"When You Come Home You Will Be Far Happier"


"Because.... Oh sod this, GET TO BED NOW!!!!"

  • But... why? I never discouraged mine from questioning, and only lament that I hadn't better answers. Well-wrought!

    This is cute. Reminds me of my uncle trying to explain to my little cousin why he had to do to bed but I didn't.
