Selective Hearing

Mom says,
"Eat your beans!"
I have no idea
What she means.

Her lips move,
But I don't understand.
Besides, I'm listening
To my favorite band.

But if she whispers,
"Let's eat a treat."
I'm the first one
In my seat.

I'd choose beans!

Your poetry is fantastic. Have you thought about tweeting it on Twitter?

Gosh, and I thought you couldn't hear because you had beans in your ears.
