You Gotta

Every now and then, you gotta
Raise a little heck!
You gotta toss the niceness out
And dig up all the dreck!
You gotta roll in sludgy mud,
You gotta scream with glee!
You gotta coat your hair with cheese
And set your belches free!
You gotta make a castle
Out of peas and mashed potaters,
You gotta fill your sister’s bath
With rubber alligators!
You gotta dance in underpants,
You gotta bang on pots!
You gotta fling your scrambled eggs
With everything you gots!
But you don’t gotta shave the cat
Or plot your brother’s doom,
Or tie your grandma to the couch—
That’s why you’re in your room.

  1. YES! YES! Every now and then, we humans gotta...
    But, when you get out, young man, must know where to draw the line...
