Wretched Rhymes

What Were They Thinking (1)

Potty Training

Pacifier in my mouth,
on the john I sat,
underoos around my shoes,
a photo moment that,
my mom and daddy thought was cute –
a color framed format,
never thinking that someday,
I’d be a bureaucrat,

running for a house seat,
or a Senate race,
or a lawyer helping folks
avoid a big disgrace,
or a hot shot astronaut
riding into space.

A musical performer
on that Idol show,
or an Oscar nominee,
with a big ego.
Just what were they thinking,
snapping that photo.
