A Poem by CarolT-W

A brief glimpse into this morning

Mia-ow Mia-ow Mia-ow owwwwwwwwww
Cats alert me to a phone message
I hear no other ringtones
This works, cats work

Mum are you awake
Can you get me
Ill buy you coffee at Mac'ers
This works, coffee works

Mia-ow Mia-ow Mia-ow owwwwwwwwww
Mum have you got something for diarrhea
Ej's gone 3 times this morn, poor kid
Yes, I reply, on way 
This works, emergencies work

What time does Matt need to be at work?
I dont know ask
9, its 5 to - rush
This works, necessity works

Pink fluffy dressing gown
no knickers
rushing here and there
I cringe
This works, shame works

I could get up at 6
shower, dress and wait
see if the need arises
for mum
This works, no-one said

People have described me as having a great sense of humour, kind , generous and somewhat quirky, they're probably right. I grew up reading to escape a childhood from hell and lost myself in adventures.. more..
