Poems about my 5-year-old

[Previously titled “Poems for my 5-year old”]

I was sorting through some old, old files today and came across some poems I wrote back then. Two little ditties were inspired by my son, who was 5 years old at the time:

Temper Tantrums

The Moving Finger

The writing’s on the wall.
The trouble is, the writer’s five
And writing in my hall.
