And now a wonderfully entertaining poem from Ann Patras.
Several years ago I belonged to a Writers’ website. One week they set us a task. We had to recall a personal experience and write about it, in verse. It didn’t take me long to recall an incident which had happened when the kids were younger. I wrote it in the voice of one of my children. Here it is:
That’s When the Fight Started
Here is a story to be told, it happened to our Mummy.
She’s still quite cross about it all, but we thought it was funny.
Our Daddy had an accident, he nearly burnt the fryer
He put the pan outside to cool, but should have put it higher.
Next morning our dog Cane got up and thought it was his birthday
From nose to neck his fur stuck out, like Mummy’s real bad-hair-day.
You see, he’d licked the pan all clean, and cos it was so greasy
His head and shoulders got oiled up – it wouldn’t come off easy.
Mum thought she’d better bath the dog but he was dead against it.
He leapt right out, jumped on her bed, and absolutely drenched it.
He next ran out into the yard and jumped amongst the flowers
Then mum cleaned up the mess he’d made – she said it took her hours.
My brother said “Let’s go and play.” So off we went to Peter’s
His Mum was buying ice-cream cones and said that she would treat us.
I didn’t know my brother Brad had left our gate wide open
The dog came out to track us down, well that’s what he was hopin’.
Was only when we got back home, we noticed Cane was missing,
Our neighbour said he’d seen him trotting past, when he was fishing.
With everyone out calling him, on bikes, in cars and trucks
We found him at the pig-farm gate, all covered up in muck.
But by the time we all got home the day had turned to night.
When we walked in our Mum just screamed “My goodness, what a sight.”
What happened next was quite a scene, now Daddy’s broken hearted.
He said that Mum should bath the dog. That’s when the big fight started.
