A Mother's Lament Poem by Dee Daffodil

A Mother's Lament

Rating: 4.7


No punching, no hitting
No biting, no spitting
No blabbering, no blubbering
No fibbing, no flubbering
No snitching, no telling
No crying, no yelling
No swiping, no snatching
No sneaking, no catching
No pushing, no shoving
Be nice, be loving! !

Just get along! ! !

Dee, As much as I enjoyed reading that, Why do I think that it didn't work?

This rings a bell...(my father in law used to say that you shouldn't tell them not to do things - you should try and distract them. You try doing that 24/7! ! Used to annoy me so...) Joey

A simple recipe for the good life. Punchy - can imagine the refereee in a boxing match makiing this declaration at the start. The last two lines would make it veryinteresting. Has that same relaxed easy to digest style as 10K. Very good writing. xx jim
