Sourdough Ball

You grew while I tried to
Those are the marks on the wall

And I knew cause I raised you 
From a little sourdough ball
Sharp and sensible

And you flew 
While I childproofed 
Each of the plugs in the hall 

High on carbs
Nigh invincible at the steps 
As you stumble and fall
And your head hit the table

Three stitches one popsicle
