Tit for Tat
January 28, 2015

A poem for fun!

Tit for Tat

She's always hungry when you're in public places

With all unfamiliar and judgmental faces

But without a doubt

You whip them out

And smuggle your baby some milk

But now they're looking

At what you're cooking

And you feel a wave of guilt

But stop right there

They can gawk and stare

It's ignorance at its best

Because one look at that tiny soothed little face

Will make you forget the rest

So look the onlookers right in the eye

And give them a pitiful grin

They'll never understand the perfect bond

That they consider to be a sin

I feel bad for all you noobs

Who fear the boobs

My baby's hunger pangs come first

What I hear is a plea from my child

That she's suffering from thirst

Would you deny your child a drink

If he/she was crying for one?

Of course you wouldn't

In turn I shouldn't

Since we acknowledge our children's needs

And if you have a problem with that

Well, tit for tat!
