Just another day

#Napowrimo #paperswans #children

Picking up post for Mum and dad

and reading a chapter a day

Helping doing the washing

and putting it away

one hundred and one little things to do

whilst i’m away from school

playing games with nanna

watching granddad play the fool

and i’ve pegged out all my teddies clothes

so they’ll be as snug as a bug

this afternoon i’ll be dressing them

and giving them a great big hug

Question

#Napowrimo #questions

Where is this country, uncle ?

said this rather inquisitive chap

he’d just come round from forty winks

having had an impromptu nap

Can you help me draw it, uncle ?

I’m having a problem is true

so if you’d help me with this problem

i’m having a bit of a do!

Can we make something Uncle ?

Something nice and sweet

Jam Tarts or maybe chocolate cake

a tasty tea time treat

And when we’ve had our tea-time food

and filled up all our bellies ,

Can we watch some Cartoons on the box?

Our favourite afternoon telly!

and reading practice

Sat in a room, lined with literary works

The lad peers through his assessment

Understandably, he might not produce the works of Keats this evening, but with

Dutiful observance, and conscientious research – he might just do well at his

Misplaced

In response to the prompt Misplaced

You’re always doing it,

scrambling about

as you lose your temper

and scream and shout

 

You swore that you had them

At breakfast time

and left them on the table

upon the clocks alarm chimes

 

So things they get moved

from floor onto shelf

you should really calm down

its bad for your health!

 

And work that was worked out

so well like a treat

lies scattered ‘cross duvet

not looking so neat

 

Your bag it lies empty

scattered ‘cross the floor

as you hunt for your keys

you’ve left in the door!
