Bathtub By Jennifer, age 9
Don’t tell me to give you a sponge bath
because I don’t know you.
Don’t tell me to rob my father
because he has cameras everywhere.
Don’t tell me to kiss my mom’ s nephew
because he has bad breath.
Don’t tell me to wake up at six in the morning
because I’m still wearing a facial mask.
Don’t tell me to do drugs
because they’re going to give me lead poison.
Don’t tell me to be a vegetarian
because I love meat and meat loves me.
Tell me to fill your bathtub with venom
because I want to.
