Funny what gets the writing juices flowing...I watched the relationship between a kid and his mom...


One to ten, mommies boy,

Eleven to fourteen, daddy a toy,

Fourteen and above,

Nothing fits like a glove,

Sowing then are they their hormonal oats..


No more fishing with dad on the boat,

Spending long periods in the bathroom quite remote,

Constructing around themselves an emotional moat,

Wearing the same clothes as does everyone else, nothing of note..


Trying to fit in, changing styles daily,

Played all his young life a ukulele ,

Switched to a head banging guitar,

Behavior beyond that of the bizarre..


We have all gone through it,

parents thinking of murder to commit,

At the dinner table they start to spit,

Wont be long before dad puts an end to all this shit..

Oh, it's not all that bad and, if our parents survived, so will we (we hope)! (When did Rufuz start spitting?:))

smiling.... its a world of constant change...funny looking back now how the issues were so meaningless...and our attitudes and egos seemed so important...this old CSNY comes to mind...

"And you, of tender years,
Can't know the fears that your elders grew by,
And so please help them with your youth,
They seek the truth before they can die.

Teach your parents well,
Their children's hell will slowly go by,
And feed them on your dreams
The one they picks, the one you'll know by."...

Oh don't I know this well...have them all around be all day long!!

Wish I could just fly away from those "I know it all " attitudes!!

Love Tinka

Hormonal oats are not limited to boys; we girls have them raging too. Though they may respond a little differently, they certainly make dealing with adolescent girls a difficult task. Cute poem, Ed.
Take care,

Excellent capture Ed!

Boys will be boys, my friend. Hormonal oats - very good!

PS I learned very young to only spit, when Dad wasn't home.
