Children's Story: Vanity Comes In A Small Package by Terry Fitterer
 
I love to play dress-up,
Good grief! Can't you tell?
I'm lovin' Mom's shoes,
but, my feet need to swell!
 
When Daddy comes home,
he still doesn't believe,
how grown-up I look,
for a kid so na´ve.
 
Regarding Mom's make-up,
I cannot deny,
her mascara and me,
just don't see eye to eye!
 
I still can recall,
how Mom cursed on the day,
that I stole her red lipstick,
and, started to play.
 
I thought it was chalk
that I soon could erase,
but, the carpet was ruined--
then came, "You're a disgrace!!"
 
So, I sat in the corner,
for hours, it seemed,
"Mother, please don't tell Dad,
I will try to redeem!"
 
I try to look older--
to this I'll confess,
I peek in the mirror,
but, my hair's still a mess!!
 
The point of this story,
believe it or not,
Is: Stay as you are,
'cause you're all that you've got!
