The Little Boy and Old Man Quote by Shel Silverstein

The Little Boy and Old Man

Said the little boy, sometimes I drop my spoon.


Said the little old man, I do that too.

The little boy whispered, I wet my pants.

I do too, laughed the old man.

Said the little boy, I often cry.

The old man nodded. So do I.

But worst of all, said the boy,

it seems grown-ups don’t pay attention to me.

And he felt the warmth of a wrinkled old hand.

I know what you mean, said the little old man.

-Shel Silverstein
