Boy's hilarious poem about famous dad goes viral

Poetry can often be misconstrued in search of a deeper meaning – this was not one of those times.

US actor Rob Delaney, who stars in British sitcom Catastrophe, took to Twitter to share his five-year-old son’s masterpiece that quickly left social media users in tears.

“The cat is a cat. Dogs barck and woof. My dad poos every morning,” the poem reads.

“Perfection,” Author Giles Paley-Phillips commented.

“Is that a hai-poo?” another user asked.

“That’s why I love kids,” one woman wrote.
