600 Credit Cards

Rafi began to memorize The Charge of the Light Brigade, but now she's changing it.

She recites the first stanza straight, and the second one up to "Theirs not to reason why". But then she recites:
Theirs but to do and buy.
Into the Shopping Mall rode the 600.

Food court to right of them
Food court to left of them
Food court in front of them
Eat! Eat! Eat! Eat!
Then she collapses in laughter.

I'm not sure if we're going to finish the poem. So far, it has been educational. She has learned the words "blunder", "dismay", and "reply". She has learned the poetic principal of having one Soldier stand for all of them. She's learning how to parody.

She turns 6 next Monday.
