Kiddies Party

The kiddie’s party’s underway
The titchy ones have come to play
Criteria for getting in
You must be three and love a din

Jammy cakes for all such do’s
Are worn in hair and some on shoes
Into mouths, a little goes
But takes a detour up the nose

Cakes with little sweeties on
Turn your back the sweeties gone
And all the little kids deny
Surprise surprise, it’s their first lie

Pass the parcel round it goes
You pass it till the music slows
But some hold on and won’t be beat
Surprise surprise it’s called deceit

Blind mans buff they feel around
Go and hide don’t make a sound
The blind man sensing his defeat
Takes blind fold off, he’s called a cheat

Now it’s time to sit and eat
The stuff that isn’t on their feet
It’s all the choccy cakes they pick
They laugh at different coloured sick

A goody bag; it’s time to go
And kids their gratitude will show
Mummy says “say thanks Jerome”!
Jerome with bag, has f****d off home

    And all this without alcohol! This one takes me back to plates bursting with cocktail frankfurts 'we always referred to them as little boys' and the inevitable tomato sauce; a carpet strewn with meringue (it's amazing just how far four eggs and a cup of sugar will go) . And from what I remember the guest of honor invariably had the worst time. Your 'Kiddies Party' is delivered with great wit and a skillful choice of language. You're quite a comedian, Steve. And quite a poet, too. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

    Brilliant! You have captured the event admirably. They are an ordeal to get through. The sighs of relief when all have disappeared from view. Hilarious write. Smarties anyone? ? ? ? You might enjoy my poem 'A Family Christmas' page 2 or 3 I think. A grown up party, sort of! ! ! ! !
    Thanks for this wonderful humour.
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX
