I never saw a wishing-well wish,
or a weeping willow cry.
or a teacher in a school of fish,
and I never saw butter fly.

I donít know why thereís toothpaste,
(to put a tooth back in?)
Iíve never seen a waste paperís waist,
(I would guess itís very thin).

There are so many words that confuse me,
but Iím really not that dumb.
Itís just that Iím still a baby,
Lying here sucking my thumb.

All that is necessary for the forces of evil to win the world is for enough good men to do nothing...Edmund Burke

You surprised me at the end and made me smile. Somewhere burried in the archives of my poetry collection I have a poem on that same theme inheirited from my mom.

It's a good effort. Keep thinking about it. I have a hunch there's more to be added to this one.
