Breastfeeding is normal, nature designed babies to eat,
Curled up at our breasts, listening to our hearts beat.
And the magic in this loving and wondrous act,
Is a bond so incredible, an edible pact.
We’ve captured its beauty in all manner of ways,
We’ve posed for oil paintings, for sculptures, for days,
From cave drawings to pyramids, babes from all times and places,
Are shown just where they should be with boobs in their faces!
Today breastfeeding is celebrated by those who can and who choose,
To feed their own babies, (how did that make the news?)
We take precious photos, upload to blogs or to twitter,
But if we share them on Facebook, we’re left feeling bitter.
Facebook have shunned them. Their beauty forbidden,
Their twisted policy states that our nipples be hidden .
“Breastfeeding’s permitted” it concedes but what’s written
Leaves mothers nursing their wounds without having been bitten.
Breastfeeding is normal, its just what we do.
So keep sharing your pictures and I’ll take some too.
Until boobs feeding babies is so common a sight,
That no-one will notice and all will be right.
