A tantrum from nowhere
From out of the void
Something I’ve said
Has got you annoyed
Probably that simple word
That all parents know
The opposite to "Yes"
So you stamp on my toe
Or pull at my clothes
Take a bite of my arm
When a few moments ago
You were happy and calm
The tears now are streaming
You scream and you shout
With a whine that continues
As you run about
But because I love you
I set down my mug
Put out my arms
And reach for a hug
You sigh at my shoulder
Bury your head in my neck
Holding me tight
Leaning back for a peck
Though still I’m confused
There’s no reason or rhyme
For most of these upset’s
There’ll still be a next time
