THEY'RE BAAAACK

THEY'RE BAAAACK

A Poem by T

THEY'RE HUNGRY!!

AND THEY'VE EATEN,

MY FAVORITE CHIPS,

THE NUTTY CHOCOLATE BROWNIE ICE CREAM,

WASN'T THERE A PIE???

ALMOST ALL OF THE FOOD IN THE HOUSE.


THEY'RE NOISY

AND THE TV IS GOING

WHILE THE MUSIC BLARES

AND THE COMPUTER IS HUMMING

WITH THE EARPHONES ON THEIR HEADS

THEY LISTEN TO THEIR IPODS.


THEY'RE MESSY

AND THE DISHES ARE PILING UP

WITH THE TOWELS ON THE FLOOR

AND WRAPPERS ON THE COUNTER

WITH THE CHAIRS NO LONGER AROUND THE TABLE

THEY'VE BUILT A FORT IN MY LIVING ROOM

 

THEY'RE MINE

AND I MISS THEM WHEN THEY'RE GONE

EVEN THOUGH THE HOUSE IS CLEAN

AND THE FOOD IS THERE

AND THE COMPUTER IS FREE

AND THE CHAIRS ARE BACK.

 

I PREFER THE MESS, THE NOISE,

     SCUSE ME, I'M GOING FOOD SHOPPING:)

Oh dear, representatives of Generation Next...
This is a fun, light-hearted read, although I felt pretty bad for the Mum despite her sense of humour about it all - my cousin has 5 kids [and a boyfriend who's kind of like a kid] and she spends her whole time either at work, cleaning up after them/cooking for them or driving them places they want to go. Crazy.
It must be hard to get the balance right between getting kids to help out a little and making them do too much.
You did a good job of creating a portrait composed mostly of lists.
Thanks for sharing this [and thanks for your review].

That's nice, I love it. And so true too. When both my grandsons get to going, I'm the dust cloud that follows along behind and cleans up.
