Big Sis told me it was a pill
I swallowed it while I was ill
Later she admitted with glee
It was a seed planted inside me.
My heart raced, I had to know
Would this seed inside me grow?
I felt my belly begin to rise
I imagined myself made into pies.
I screamed, I cried, I went frantic
I hollered for Momma in a dreadful panic
She raced to see what the fuss was about
I hollered, “Momma get it out!”
Momma sat at the edge of my bed
And calmed me down by rubbing my head.
What is that has you filled with such fear
I pointed at my belly, “A seed in here.”
Momma laughed and said you’ll be fine.
A seed won’t grow without soil and sunshine.
I looked up at her asked, “Is this true?”
She smiled and asked, “Would I lie to you?”
She was right about Momma’s not lyin’
I wiped my tears and stopped my cryin’
I’d get even with Sis for her little trick
Just wait til’ next time she gets sick.
