Baby’s First Words

by “The Baby”

Hi. Is anyone out there? I can hear something, but it’s all muffled. What’s going on? I’m sleepy. {zonk}

Where was I? Heck, where AM I? Who am I? Oh good grief, I’m sleepy again. {zonk}

Well, this is going absolutely nowhere. I’m so bored. {zonk}

  1. Hello, hello, hello
    Is there anybody in there?
    Just nod if you can hear me.
    Is there anyone at home?

    Come on, come on down,
    I hear you’re feeling down.
    Well I can ease your pain,
    Get you on your feet again.

    Relax, relax, relax
    I need some information first.
    Just the basic facts.
    Can you show me where it hurts?

    There is no pain, you are receding.
    A distant ship’s smoke on the horizon.
    You are only coming through in waves.
    Your lips move, but I can’t hear what you’re saying.

    When I was a child, I had a fever.
    My hands felt just like two balloons.
    Now I’ve got that feeling once again.
    I can’t explain, you would not understand.
    This is not how I am.

    I have become comfortably numb.
