I Smile

I smile and ask again
About what kind of yogurt he wants
With his chicken nuggets and
Again and
Again and
He takes a moment away from screaming for an ice pop
Before lunch and
Moans in a fashion that sounds a lot like
Strawberry Banana
So I run with it and
When he does come to the table
Tastes the yogurt and
Immediately screams that it tastes bad
I tell him about the specter of wasted food
Pour it back in the bucket and
Get blueberry
He eats it all
Gets seconds
Has his nugget and
Asks politely to be excused
Followed immediately by an equally polite request for an ice pop
I smile and say yes
