A Bad Word

Though only four years old,

He said a bad word in preschool;

Twenty other four year olds

Heard him break the rule.

Now twenty-one four year olds

Know this real bad term;

And it’s stuck in all their heads

With a memory that’s firm;

And all around the playground,

That word keeps slipping out;

And three year olds are hearing it,

Of that there is no doubt!

So now all these little people

Know a word they shouldn’t say

Because a little preschool boy

Heard his father “cuss” one day.
