A parents insanity


Notice of absence from Jooles
I disappear for months on end......just my life but I always come back!

You drive me to insanity 

You make me doubt myself 

You turn my life into a calamity 

So stubborn, so sure of yourself 


You scream and shout and stamp and cry 

You pout and fold your arms 

I hold my head and give a sigh 

Immune to all my charms 


I  say yes and you say no 

And round and round it goes 

Here it comes. . . . . . . the final blow 

The greatest of all shows 


The stand off of all stand offs 

Even Eastwood would be scared 

Surprisingly the magic of Gandolf 

Couldn't fight that stare 


You close your eyes and yawn and stretch 

I quickly sieze my chance 

To bed you go with this I pledge 

Tomorrow, no song and dance 


Your rosey cheeks, your mouth pressed tight 

An angel tucked in bed 

Myself and this princess did we fight 

Or was it all in a mothers head

  • Comment from author about the poem: I know a lady who has a daughter and she always talks about what a nightmare she can be and makes it sound a if she's the only mother in the world with a difficult child. It makes me laugh. All parents and guardians know how difficult kids can be....especially little girls! Whether they are 2 of 12 ... kids are hard work but then they say sorry and look abashed or go peacefully to sleep and you just think. ....what?
