Mama’s Advice

        
        Baby, not all you can reach out to grab
        will be what you’re supposed to have
        its dirt and germs making you feel bad.
                Don’t put that in your mouth!
        
        Baby, you don’t know where that’s been
        nor what where it’s last been has seen
        nor whether whatever it was’ll turn green.
                Don’t put that in your mouth!
        
        Baby, that’s an easy way to up and die
        without even having a good reason why.
        God knows what won’t be true is a lie.
                Don’t put that in your mouth!
