Writer's Block

A Poem by MelissaAndres
"

Poem about a young destructive boy whose Daddy sees him through rose-colored glasses.

"

As Daddy came through the door
After his grueling newspaper job
Mommy spewed harsh words
Before he'd released the knob.

We tried to go to the park today
But he threw a terrible fit
He screamed, kicked and cried
And another child got bit!

He's only three-years-old
Daddy smiled and said
He can't be that bad
It's all just in your head!

I just got the baby down
Because she missed her nap
Please go and check on him
Don't let your lips just flap.

He had been in his room
For just about an hour
She had shown him she was boss
The one with all the power.

He's been in there alone?
Completely by himself?
He could get hurt with stuff
Or climbing on a shelf.

He's been quiet, Mommy replied.
I haven't heard a peep.
I'm sure he was pouting
And then went on to sleep.

Daddy walked into the room
Of his one and only son.
He couldn't help but laugh aloud
When he saw what had been done.

Etched upon the bedroom walls
Were deep dark crayon scribbles
Junior looked up at his Dad
With a big grin and a giggle.

Red and green, black and blue
Purple, brown and yellow
This freckled and mischievous kid
Was such a clever fellow!

Mommy peeked into the space
She gasped out big and loud
But Daddy smiled widely
And suddenly seemed so proud.

Picking up a wooden piece,
The square rolling in his hands
Daddy announced his offspring
Would be known throughout the land.

He'll pen the greatest novel
But now in his mind it's locked
See how he's written on this?
It's his Writer's Block!

Lol - this is very witty Melissa.

It recalled a very very funny episode of Everybody Loves Raymond where the main man Ray could see what a little devil the son of his wife's new friends was - but no one else could see it.

The time Woody (from Cheers) came to stay at Frasier's is a scream.

I did and you are welcome.
Hee hee. Those little scamps get up to all sorts and get away with it,mostly. I like how you portrayed the parents as different in their views. many a family crisis is caused by not being together in what is right and what is wrong. A few bedroom walls have met my crayon box, but thankfully I outgrew it in childhood and don't still do it. That would just be weird. :)
Beautifully captured Melissa, the menace of parenting :)
