Consumer product warning

Consumer product warning

Of all the products purchased which

For warnings have a knack,

The one I’d least expected came

On toilet paper pack.

Is this the peak of silliness?

It’s almost joke or caper —

To put a hazard warning thus

On rolls of toilet paper?

But sure enough, it’s on the pack —

A caution notice blurts:

“Do not give plastic wrapping to

A baby,” it asserts.

I guess a certain logic reigns,

Explains why they’re so blunt —

’Cause after all, the package shows

A baby on the front!
