"...John Kenney is back with a brand new collection of poems, this time taking on the greatest "joy" in life: children. Kenney covers it all, from newborns, toddlers, and sleep deprivation, to the terrible twos, terrible tweens, and terrible teens. A parent's love is unconditional, but sometimes that button can't help but be pushed. Between back to school shopping, summer vacations that never end, the awkwardness of puberty, the inevitable post-college moving back in, and more, a parent's job is never done, whether they like it or not."

If there was one thing I could compare children too it would be sea otters. You see, sea otters are the Ted Bundy's of the water where children are just children. Vapid, egotistical, nonsensical, self-absorbed, nihilistic, bundles of existential destruction. The few good things that come out of having kids can be counted on few hands because as humans we only get two hands and any more hands would be used to count the excess of negatives. However there comes a slight joy to obtaining your very own kid such as naming them. I would name one super, one friends, and freak everyone out when I call out for them to assemble. You could name them Exodia and obliterate and win the hearts and minds of any one who can recognize which children's card game i'm referencing. To say that they bring the best of both worlds would be a lie because I've been to both worlds and they are both terrible. When I was young I was told I had a face only a mother could love which reflects poorly on mothers because it implies they have hilariously low standards when it comes to face appraisal. All in all I would suggest you appropriate your own kids because what else do you have to look forward to when you turn thirty.
