Bounce Upon My Bed
I’m not allowed to bounce upon my bed.
“Find somewhere else to hop,” my parents said.
They may seem old, and cold, and mean
to scold their baby jumping bean.
“The bed is not a trampoline!”
And momma fears I’ll bonk my little head.
My jumping, bumping bad behavior led
my mom and pop to punish me instead.
They made me sleep upon the floor
to keep from leaping anymore
(since I’ve already broken four)
and now I never bounce upon my bed.
