Hate This Child

Hate this child, my sister said:

He’s painful, scary, selfish and he wets the bed.

Hate this child, all my brothers say:

He’s loud and he’s expensive and he’s in our way!

Prevent this child

Kill this child

Ignore this child

Hate this child.

Love this child,

"Eyes of Wonder," 2009, Josiah Meyer

Said my Father true

His whiny needy selfish

Is my gift to you.

Love this child

Said His Son above

And in dying, living, laughing

I will teach you love.

Receive this child

Hold this child

Adopt this child

Love this child.
