Facts of Life

“Where did I come from?”,young Freddy said

His father choked, whilst his Mother went red

But being prepared for this moment already

His Mother quietly took the hand of young Freddy

And led him away to the quiet of the den

Where she picked up a book made to enlighten young men

Starting off with the birds and then with the bees

She proceeded to lecture with quiet expertise

Progressing to humans to ova and sperm

But noticing that Freddy was not keen to learn

He kept glancing around and looking about

His Mother was worried that she’d left something out

How vast was his knowledge on the subject already?

“Any questions then?” she asked of Young Freddy

“But where did I come from” that’s what I mean

My Mate came from Scotland, and his Dad, Aberdeen
