This week is half term, and today we happen to be in a place with a dodgy internet connection, so for Poetry Monday I leave you with these few silly lines that I woke up with a few days ago. Happy holiday if you’re having one!
Lines upon waking on the first day of half term
O, first day of break! O, ignoring the time!
O duvet immoveable, pillow sublime!
O silent alarm, O husband all snores,
School run, where’s thy sting? Where thy power, O chores?
O slippers, O dressing gown, tea in my cup,
O magazine, O – oh, wait. The children are up.
