My choice was to write a poem about my daughter. Of course, I didn't know what words I was going to get, so this went in a much different direction than I intended.

The words were: wasteful, cranium, teaching assistant, and stink.

My two-year-old child fills her curious cranium
With facts about dinosaurs, art and uranium
Her knowledge is growing at rates quite consistent
With having a tutor or teaching assistant
Yet all of this knowledge seems just a bit wasteful
When she's filling her diaper with stink quite distasteful.
