It’s apparent you’re a parent
I can see it on your face.
You’re eyes are glazed and glassy
Like you haven’t slept in days.
Your hair is styled (almost)
In a frazzled kind of mop,
and you didn’t even notice
There’s a wet splotch on your top.
Your stories ramble on these days
Beginning, end, who knows?
To follow what you’re saying
Keeps a person on their toes.
Some folks might mistake these signs
For alcohol abuse,
But it’s apparent you’re a parent
Cause you smell like apple juice.
