Mummy’s Big Night Out: A Poem

115

Don’t get me wrong, you’re very cute

But make another peep

And I will lose my mind my dear

So please just go to sleep

 

Mummy has a date you see

With friends, with wine, with life

So please just sort your damn self out

And save me from this strife

 

My poor old mane still needs a wash

No clue on what to wear

So, I’ve got better things to do

Than sit and stroke your hair

 

Not got a scrap of make up on

It’s going to take me hours

To look alive and well again

I need some magic powers

 

My friends are waiting patiently

And drinking up the booze

I’d have been there years ago

If you’d just had a snooze

 

I don’t ask you for much, my sweet

And give you all I’ve got

But if you don’t fall asleep right now

Friends we will be not 

 

I don’t know why you’re crying, love

I’ve snuggled you all day

There’s not a chance on this green earth

I’ll let you up to play

 

I need a drink already now

The screaming’s done me in

Please husband, won’t you be a dear

And get me all the gin?

 

But oh you’re just a little one

You haven’t got a clue

How much you’re getting on my nerves

So here, let me tell you

 

You may just be a baby, love

Of this I have no doubt

But NEVER get your butt in the way

Of Mummy’s big night out.
