Told You So

There are three words that every parent
Never wants to hear from their children
It's not "I hate you"
They hear enough of that already

It's "Told you so"
They always have to be right
Never the kid
us kids, we treasure that moment

The moment when we can
look our parents in the face and say
"Told You So"
We should videotape
Every single time it is said to a parent's face.

My parents told me
that I would never
be able to write a whole poem
about Told You So.

I said that I could
Just they watch
and I'm going to let
whoever wants to
learn about these three words

Is the camera rolling
Cause here goes
Mom, Dad,
Told You So
