Discipline

“Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand.”
    ~ Chinese proverb

She takes pride
In that now I’m five
And trying to help out
Spilling chalky water all over the garage’s cold concrete floor
In the act of cleaning the blackboard where I create
Realizing my intentions aren’t those
That necessitate discipline
She knows better than to punish me
Why think of punishment at all?
Next lifetime dear
May your mother hand you a mop
And kindly say
“Let’s finish the job together”
