Remote-A-Dad By Shel Silverstein Pg. 112

It’s just like a TV remote control,
Except that it works on fathers.
You just push the thing that you want him to do
And he does it--without any bother.
You want him to dance? Push number five.
You want him to sing? Push seven.
You want him to raise your allowance a bit?
You simply push eleven.
You want him quiet? Just hit Mute.
Fourteen will make him cough.
You want him to stop picking on you?
Yelling and telling you what not to do?
And stop bossing you for an hour or two?
Just push Power--Off.
