Baby Poop Poem

Fill a Baby's Basket or other unique container with nappies:

When babies make a little gift,
A "treasure" you might say.
It wouldn't be the thing you'd want
To share on this day.
But these diapers are full of "babies",
Something you'll enjoy.
It doesn't matter if they're made
by a little girl or boy.

The "eternal flames" you leave for us,
Are always such a treat.
We thought this time we'd send them back...
Now isn't that just sweet
