Simon Rich's "The Wisdom of Children"

Ze's blog turned me on to this New Yorker-published poem titled "The Wisdom of Children"
by Simon Rich

An excerpt:

I. A Conversation at the Grownup Table, as Imagined at the Kids’ Table

MOM: Pass the wine, please. I want to become crazy.
GRANDMOTHER: Did you see the politics? It made me angry.
DAD: Me, too. When it was over, I had sex.
UNCLE: I’m having sex right now.
DAD: We all are.

Thanks as always, Ze, for inspiration above and beyond the call of avocation.
