I washed his face and combed his hair
and dressed him in his best;
a little Levi suit, with matching jeans and vest.
He was quite excited,
not a bit withdrawn or shy;
he looked forward to this adventure,
while I tried not to cry.
You see, it was his very first day
out in the big, wide world;
he was going to kindergarten
like other boys and girls.
So my dreams for him I cherished;
I knew that he would do well,
and I could hardly wait
to hear the stories he would tell
about the many wonderful things
he had learned at school;
such as, 'two plus two is four',
and 'obey the golden rule'.
But when he came home that day
I received quite a shock;
when I asked him what was new,
he said, "Oh, not a lot...
only this one thing,
and not very useful,...shoot!
Just that the girls really like it
when you tell them that they're cute!"
Author's Notes:
He was five then...he is 25 now.  I think his perspective has changed a bit.

This must be a poem about a little red headed boy on his first day of school.  We do learn to woo the ladies quite early in life you know.  We feel that we have to if we are to stay afloat in this big big world of women and their knowing how they use their wiles to get what they want from a man/boy.

Great work!
