because why?


a child's incessant mantra

of curiosity and wonder.

he wants to know why

and, given a reason,

he asks why that reason.

rarely satisfied with one answer,

the line of interrogation is set,

once cornered, one cannot escape the


line of questioning per the child.

why this?

why that?

but why?

because why?


the answer he doesn't question is a frank

"i don't know."

a/n- oh, the joys of babysitting. if it weren't for thomas the tank engine, i'd think that one of the only words the three-year-old next door knows is "why". so cute :) thanks for reading! xoxo-xan
