(someone once bet me I couldn`t do a `Woman`s Own` poem)
(who couldn`t !)
Will you, Mary, when I ask,
Put that magazine away,
And Tommy, have you done the task
The teacher gave you yesterday?
And, Peter, where`s that jar of ants
You said were for biology?
Keep them out of Tommy`s pants
Or else you`re going to hear from me.
Here`s our Julie! `Hello chuckles,
Did my darling sleep okay?`
Tommy stop! I`ll rap your knuckles!
Put that water-gun away.
Comb your hair now, wash your faces,
Eat your corn-flakes, drink your tea,
Has everybody tied their laces?
Do your coats up properly.
Mary, straighten up your bows,
Kiss the baby, close the gate,
Quick! Before the school bus goes,
Hurry up, you`ll all be late.
Wave bye bye pet. Where`s your dummy?
That`s them gone love, now we`re free,
Let`s go in, and you and mummy
Have a lovely cup of tea
(Mind, I`ve been a bit worried about myself ever since)
