Cry Cry The Baby Goes

by A human bean | Score: 1900

Background: A new mom wishing her baby to stop crying


You cry and cry, but you just don’t know why. Are you happy, or sad? It’s impossible to tell. You cry when your full. You cry when your happy. And when you finally stop, for a second, then you start again. When you stop crying you sleep, in your soft plush bed, but, you sleep during the day. Quiet, quiet, is all I wish for, but during the night, you don’t sleep a wink. Quiet, quiet I just want to sleep, but no but no you won’t let me sleep a wink. Why oh why must you cry? Why oh why must you cry? Quiet, quiet is all I wish for. Please will you grant my wish. Just once, please grant my wish. 

I try. I buy you toys, and blankets. I try. I try. I try. 

Suddenly you stop! What has stopped you? Are you sleeping? No, you have found “A Marvelous Teething Toy” I got for you at Walmart. Wow! Wow! It’s like your quiet is a super power! And
