Two Little Boys
After a hardy rainstorm filled all the potholes in the street and alleys, a young mother
watched, through her kitchen window,
her two little boys playing in the puddles.
The older of the two, a five-year-old lad,
grabbed his sibling by the back of his head
and shoved his face into the water hole.
As the boy recovered and stood laughing
and dripping wet, the mother ran through
the yard in a panic.
She was so angry, shaking the older boy,
"Why on earth did you do that to your little brother?"
"We were just playing 'church' mommy." he said.
"I was just baptizing him...
in the Name of the Father, the Son...
and in the hole-he-goes."
