Little Mother: Day 14 of the April Poetry Challenge

Something a little more light-hearted for today’s offering… because I spent all weekend with the kids.


Little Mother


The little mother tells on her brother

“his room’s an awful mess!”

The glint behind her pious eyes

anticipates distress.


Reminding her “that’s not your job”

produces a pretty pout.

Oh how she longs to wield the law,

at misbehavior, shout.


But you’re not ready, Little Miss

to practice discipline.

For now I must remind you that

your room is a pig pen!
