the old lady… with kids like these of course she is!

her reign was not without pain
her children liked to play in the rain
when she pulled back the rein
they started to complain
so she had to explain
how hard the campaign
being a mother was such a drain
and unless they wanted the cane
then quickly inside my domain
where oatmeal you may obtain
as long as you remain
and kindly refrain
from breaking the pane
or swinging the chain
perhaps slicing a vein
if high spirits you can contain
then we will try to ascertain
how else we can entertain
in a shoe so mundane
but at least we’ll be out of the lane

  1. I love this! It’s clearly not about my kids – no chance of getting them out in the rain voluntarily. I think I might be one of them, though – I love being out in the rain (playing or otherwise!)
    But there is definitely something familiar about the whole poem – especially after they’ve had weeks and weeks off school over the summer… 🙂
