Micrograffiti: The Children’s Book by Carmen Edington

The Children’s Book by Carmen Edington

“T” is for toddler and tycoon, and truck. Tundra and tantalize and “T” rails of coke. Ornate or plain, an ill designed “T” confuses the child. A suggestive illustration and parents are wild. Telegraph is out, bearing no current relevance. Young minds are at stake. We can’t take any chances. Read in a sing-song voice, slow and very rhythmic. And please, oh please, school your child in arithmetic. The Chinese are winning. We cannot let this happen. Listen to celebrities. It’s not pointless yapping. Assemble and act quickly or the end-times are near. Hug the children ever tightly. As the future, they’re dear. “A” is for an astute America or “B” is for bust. “C” is for curtain call and “D” is for the U.S.’s dust.
