Wilt to Grow Anew

by Jacob Austin


Drip drop drip drop,

October rain will fall.

Drip drop drip drop,

and sickness comes for all.


Achew Achew,

Cough cough cough cough,

A Mother frees a sneeze.

A babe begins to wheeze.

Cough cough cough cough

Achew Achew.


Maybe with the seasons turn

Baby and Mom would start to learn.

Sadly though they began too late,

And Dad did again procreate.
