Life is good! Life is inspirational!

Testing Mum!

“I love you! Just not your behaviour!”
Mum smiled wanting to say
“Come on you brat you’re pushing me
You’re getting in my way
You’re plucking all my nerves
And pushing buttons so
You’re driving me quite crazy
It’s either me or you to go”

“You’re becoming quite a terror
I’m stressed beyond compare
I don’t get why you’re acting up
Now watch out and just beware
‘Cos if I really lose my rag
You’ll know it just you see
I’ll tell your DAD. You just wait!
You’ll go without your tea!”

But instead she smiled so sweetly
Bit her tongue – braced herself
As she loved that little rascal
Even when he was an elf
So she stopped before she started
And looked him in the eye
Holding back she took a deep breath
For he had no alibi

And then she quite calmly said it
Those words that meant so much
“I love you! Just not your behaviour
So sort it out and get in touch!
In touch and find that nicer lad
‘Cos recall there’ll be a fine
If you continue down this road
And fail to toe the line!”

Then she continued in the same vein
Without emotion or despair
Pulling him up so very short
He knew she was being fair
For everything she said was right
And he knew he had been wrong
But most of all by all accounts
He’d changed before too long!

  1. Reblogged this on Ginz&Tonic.

  2. ‘vein’ not ‘vain’ methinks – a lovely read (and not in vain). G:)

  3. A vein is a blood vessel or a distinctive style.
    Vain means self admiring or futile. (The term in vain means without success).
    A vane is a stabilizing fin or blade.

    I Googled it to ensure that I had it write / right / rite in my head. G:)

    • Lol top marks! I just read this comment and rescanned swearing blind I’d out vein but see now that Apple worked their wonders again grrrr 🙂
