Haiku Friday: Curses!
She sat down to eat,
Diving into a bowl of
Sliced bananas first.
The bowl hit the floor.
It spun like a wonky top
And spilled. “Crap!” she said.
Dad recovered first:
“That’s not nice!” Then I sputtered:
“Leave it for the dogs.”
No doubt, she heard it
From me. Four-year-old ears are
But I am grateful.
Because it could have been worse.
Or started with F.
