Good girl

When mother said maybe
I should play with the baby
without spreading plum jam on his face;
because she's my mummy
and he came from her tummy,
I surrendered the jar with good grace.
Dauphy: That looks like raspberry jam, Hobbo!
Hobbo:  Does it matter.
Dauphy:  The readers will notice.
Hobbo:  I can't find a photo of plum jam.
Dauphy:  Change the poem then.
Hobbo:  You see, that is why I do most of the writing.
Dauphy:  Forget it. No one will notice.
