I broke a dish and mom got mad. She sent me to my room because she said that I was bad.

So I’m sitting here on my canapé with my stereo and my color tv

and my favorite doll and my ‘lectric train and my building blocks and my video game,

And I’m wondering what my mother meant when she said my room was a punishment.
