There are quite a few poems about parents as well. Although they do not lack tenderness, the sometimes bitingly witty verses exude the painful ‘problem of our times’: children feel sorry for their parents who are confused by grownup existence, and sometimes they even assume responsibility for the adults who just aren’t very good at dealing with life. With their presence, children comfort the gruwnups and give them a chance to be better people.
