For a demented mum of teens

This is an excerpt of a poem ordered by her friend to cheer the mum up…



Thundering down the stairs
‘Where’s my bag? Who took my shoes?
And I didn’t do my homework
Don’t know why you’re so amused.’

‘Well you shouldn’t need reminding,’
Smiled his superior big sis
‘Oh mum, remember I’ll be late’
She stood and blew a kiss.

‘Your skirt’s too short!’
I shouted as she headed out the door
She raised one shoulder in disdain
And hitched it up some more.
