Puh Tuh Kuh

They spoke a language rich
In approximants but
Depleted of curses

In the years their baby
Became a toddling child.
For those ears they had purged

Themselves, but gradually
Profanity found cracks
Through which to seep back in.

By twelve their darling child
Cussed circles around them
And they had to pretend

To be offended by
The return of the curse.
