A Busy Household

Dad said don’t
Mum said do
And my sister hopped around
Like a silly kangaroo
The baby cried
My brother sang
And mum went off with a very loud bang

    1. Thanks, Anita. Not sure when I wrote this – I think I might have been about 14. It’s one of my more fun poems. I bet you annoyed your parents something chronic as the “silly kangaroo”:-).
