Just thought I'd share...been following the thread...
My son came home from school one day with a smile upon his face,
He'd decided he was smart enough to put me in my place
Guess what I learned in civics 2 that is taught by Mr. Wright?
It's all about the laws today, "The Childrens Bill of Rights"
It says I need not clean my room, don't have to cut my hair.
No one can tell me what to think or speak, or what to wear.
I have freedom from religion and regardless what you say,
I don't have to bow my head, and I sure don't have to pray.
I can wear earrings if I want and pierce my tongue and nose,
I can read and watch just what I like and get tattoos from head to toes.
And if you ever spank me, I'll charge you with a crime
I'll back up all the charges with the marks on my behind.
Don't you ever touch me, my body's for my use,
not for your hugs and kisses, that's just more child abuse.
Don't preach about your morals like your mama did to you,
that's nothing short of mind control, and it's illegal, too!
Mom, I have these childrens rights, so u can't influence me
or I'll call Childrens Services Division, better known as C.S.D.
Of course my first instinct was to toss him out the door,
But the chance to teach a lesson, made me think a little more
I mulled it over carefully, I couldn't let this go
A smile crept upon my face, he's messing with a pro
The next day I took him shopping at the local Goodwill store
I told him pick out what you like there's shirts and pants galore
I've called and checked with CSD who said they didn't care
If I bought you K-Mart shoes instead of Nike-Airs
And I've cancelled that appointment to take your drivers test
The CSD is unconcerned so I'll decide what's best
I said "No time to stop and eat, or pick up stuff to munch"
and tomorrow you can start to learn, how to make your own sack lunch
Just save that raging appetite and wait 'till dinner time
We are having liver and onions a favorite dish of mine!!
He asked "Can I rent a movie to watch on my VCR?"
"Sorry, but I sold your tv for new tires on my car"
I also rented out your room, you'll take the couch instead
The CSD just requires a roof above your head
Your clothing won't be trendy now, and I'll choose what we eat
That allowance that you use to get, will buy me something neat
I'm selling off your jet-ski, dirt-bike, roller blades
Check-out The Parents Bill of Rights it's in effect today!! Hey hot shot are you crying and why are you on your knees?
Are you asking God to help you out instead of CSD??
may seem off-topic, I apologize, but thought ALL PARENTS and FUTURE PARENTS would get a little chuckle...G'day....
