Bad Day

Bad Day

A Poem by SwagMaster
"

Sound familiar?:D

"
I wake up to the sound of my dad's annoying voice,
(I wouldn't even wake up, if I had a choice.)
My hair is a nest, there's drool on my cheek.
My pajamas are rumpled; and I'm not at my peak.
"Be quiet!" I scream, at my never-shut-up dad,
"I'm trying to sleep!" I yell at him, mad.
"You watch your tone," my dad is suddenly grave,
I shut up; but keep muttering, not wanting to behave.
I stagger to the kitchen, like a morning zombie girl,
The sound of my mom's singing makes me want to hurl.
"Good morning!" she says, stirring the oatmeal,
"You're making slop?" I reply. "Jeez, what's your deal?"
"You watch your tone, young lady." her hands mount her hips.
"Make me." I sneer, with a pout on my lips.
"No breakfast." she orders, pointing her spoon to the door.
"You learn to be polite." and I think, What a bore.
I flop on the couch, idly flipping through a book,
My brother bursts in, and cries to me, "Look!"
He's dressed himself up, in a cape and dumb mask:
His underwear is outside of his pants, and he's carrying a flask.
"You look like a loser!" I rudely shriek,
"Now get out of my face, you little freak."
His face crumples up, and he runs from my room.
I hear his bawling, and I start to fume.
"He just ruined my day!" I grumpily brood.
And I wonder, What put him in such a bad mood?

Hahaha, I really like this one. I think we've all had days like this, where we're just totally cranky and blame it all on someone else. The rhyme scheme is really great and helps move the poem and is pleasant to the ear. The meter is also very consistent. I think you would make a great author for children's books (as well as teen, of course). :D

Nice job!
