Parents for Today
Of course our new baby's a bundle of joy,
But don't be so quick to say Robin's a boy.
We're waiting to see, because wisdom compels us
To keep gender open until Robin tells us.
Parents for Today is part of the poem series Felicitations by Felicia Nimue Ackerman. Ackerman is a professor of philosophy at Brown University and has had over 200 poems published in a wide range of places. We are lucky to get to have a few of them published right here at Options Magazine.
