Poetry Mondays: Half Term

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.
