When I was three

my mother once spanked me!

I turned around,

and said with a frown,

“wadya do that for?”

I may have been short.

I may have been loud.

…but for whatever reason…

I stood stiffly

and proud.

She said she figured

out pretty quick.

a pat on the rump

wasn’t going to do the trick.

I don’t think she even noticed

how it should come to be

that this very apple

didn’t fall far from her tree.
