A Boy, Zander Dahl Gootee, Was Born 10/26/2012

A new human baby came into

The world via a tub of hot water

Just like his sister two years earlier.

 

Momma dropped brother in forty-five

Minutes from the time she swung her

Second leg over the rim and climbed in.

 

Sister took three hours which isn’t anything To

Sneeze at preferably in the inside corner of the elbow

At but at five-pound twelve ounces brother just popped out.

 

The mid-wife suggested contacting the Guinness

People for a question about a water birth record

And three beers, one for the midwife and two for dad.
