The Dad Who Lived to Regret Being Mean to His Kid by Calvin


Barney's dad was really bad,
So Barney hatched a plan.

When his dad said "Eat your peas!"
Barney shouted, "No!" and ran.

Barney tricked his mean ol' dad,
And locked him in the cellar.

His mom never found out where he'd gone,
'Cause Barney didn't tell her.

There his dad spent his life,
Eating mice and gruel.

With every bite for fifty years
He was sorry he'd been cruel.
