With a new baby boy the parents just had.
But they had a decision to make on this night.
And the thought of circumcision gave them a fright!
Perhaps the doctor could provide information?
So the parents could decide in this foreskin situation.
When the doc arrived, Mom asked the first question,
“Can you tell us the benefits of infant circumcision?”
The MD responded, “It’s cleaner, don’t you know?”
But then Daddy’s concern delivered a blow.
“Why would you cut my son to make it cleaner?
It is as easy as cleaning a finger!”
The doctor grew stern as they continued to question.
“Who here is a member of the medical profession?”
Mom asked, “What medical group shares your stance?
What about the American Academy of Pediatrics?”
He answered while leaving the room very fast,
“They don't recommend it.” - a fact at last.
Mom and Dad knew what they should do.
Their son is perfect and whole - this is true.
His body, his choice… yes, that decision is right.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
