The Toddler Menace

Guilty is the face of my child who got caught
Coloring on the walls with a crayon
Who also stripped off his clothes outside
And led a shameless chase across the damn lawn

Guilty is the face of my child who got caught
Soaked from dropping a gallon of juice
Who wanted to pour himself a cup
So much self-control I had to produce

Guilty is the face of my child who got caught
Sprinkling his crackers all over the living room
I only gave him a packet but it looks like a box-worth
Cleaning involved more than a pan and broom.

Guilty is the face of my child who got caught
Stuffing his mouth with fistfuls of cake
For someone’s birthday we hadn’t sung to yet
Oh my goodness sake!

Underneath his cute demeanor
Is a curious mind with no limit
My little mad scientist and troublemaker
Sometimes can’t be left alone for a minute

Daily Prompt: Guilty
