A Bunch Of Roses

Rating: 4.9
I love life but does life love me when I have to cook
tea for a family of three.
One wants this and one wants that and between
those wants I have to feed the cat.
Then the cat up's her nose and walks away
Why should I worry it's only a stray
A black and white moggy that the kids brought home
they felt sorry for it because it was all alone.
Now I am the owner of this fussy old cat
that's made its bed in my best Sunday hat.
I love life but does life love me, when I go
out shopping and the kids think its a spending spree.
One wants this and one wants that and between
those wants there's no time for a chat.
I meet a friend I have not seen seen for ages
when we talk about the past the kids go into rages
Come on Mum its time to go home, if Dads tea is not
ready he will have a moan.
I love life but does life love me when I come home
from shopping and have to start the tea.
No time for a cuppa just rushed of my feet and the
kids go off with their skateboards into the street.
Two shouting loud the youngest crying, can't see whats
a matter the eggs are frying.
I love life but does life love me when I'me up the hospital
and having scrapped the tea; a bump on the head and two
bloody noses, I wish someone would send me a Bunch of

This is a bit funny and I do recommend it. I also liked the references repeated throughout. This is very good style. Well written. Nice to past the time. GW62

Who are you trying to kid, Sylvie? This is you - Speedy Gonzales - at your most normal. If it wasn't for your foot holding you back you'd be doing all this every day! Love the poem, as usual. Love, Fran xxx
