Poetry: Here’s Some More I Wrote Earlier

July 31, 2007

Go to fullsize image 

 I have decided it is time to unleash another of my verbal rhymings on the unsuspecting world. This was written about 8 years ago, when my children were 12, 8 and 3 year old twins.  The limited response to my previous effort leads me to believe that I will not be publishing my first book of verse any time soon. Enjoy.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF DAD

The alarm rings at quarter to seven,

In my dreams I was in heaven,

At the sound of that bell,

I’m back into hell,

The next time for bed’s half eleven.

It’s time for brekfast with my four boys,

I step all over their toys,

Milks been spilt on the floor,

I rush for the door,

At work how I’ll long for that noise.

An hour later still stuck in the car,

I wish work wasn’t that far,

My cars overheating,

Late for a meeting,

Doing this every day is bizarre.

Eighteen messages left on my phone,

Most of them having a moan,

By the end of the day,

They’ll all go away,

I’ll deal with them all on my own.

Now it’s time for the evening repeat,

Home to my little retreat,

My wife’s at the door,

She’s cleaned up the floor,

She really is ever so sweet .

Now I’ll put all my children to bed,

It soon clears my messed up head,

On the computer,

Read Harry Potter,

I kiss each one on the head.

Cook dinner, wash up, have a shower,

If I’m quick I’ll have half an hour,

Some time for a think,

And maybe a drink,

Tell my wife how I love her.

Half eleven and now for some rest,

My day was another big test,

I musn’t grumble,

I feel so humble,

My family is the best.

    Thanks Winslie, let me know when you’ve done. I’d like to read it.

  3. Brilliant!

    And you know what else is brilliant? Your pictures at the beginning of your posts, almost without exception. This one from “Falling Down” (which should have starred Matt Dillon) is particularly hilarious.

    And you know what else is hilarious? Environmentalist Dave Z’s recent comments under my latest post. I mean it. You have *got* to read that exchange, daveross. Even if you don’t like long-winded stuff, this is worth it.
