When does a bath tub become a helmet?

A child's curiosity becomes a comedy to us adults.

Mark and his Bath Tub

Take time out and attend to a crying child.
not asking why, or telling him to stop. 
a test in child psychology - if you can pass,
if you can bridge a generation gap.  

Mark, typical of postmodern children,
needs nonetheless the old love -
concern and attention many of us forgot.
and all he needed is his bath tub.

That's what he needed all right, it's fine.
But Mark didn't stop crying;
there's more than bath - it's the tub!
and to war (gasp!) he was going.

A child soldier ready to face the world;
or retreating to womb's comfort;  
the young generation scared, unprepared,
Oh, it's all but laughter we sought. ~
