The kids are now at school The Husband is away Some hours of peace and quiet Are my plans for today
Let’s get a washing on the go Socks all over the floor And crammed under divan beds I’ve found a dozen more!
A noisy spiky and wet cat Like a soggy black hedgehog Informs me that it’s raining Wheesht yourself you screechy mog
Demanding that it’s lunchtime But he doesn’t like the lamb And paws along the fridge door For real chicken or cooked ham
Washing now is on the airer As it cannot go outside Better stick the heating up a bit Or it just won’t get dried
Now for the pile of rhubarb Got from Mary next door A crumble and a tart or two And custard, lots to pour
Holy poop it’s time to go And get kids back from school I wonder where the morning’s gone It’s been a mad whirlpool
The time from 9 till 3 o’clock Disappeared to my dismay I’ve hardly stopped, barely a breath Hardly a tranquil day
