A poem dedicated to parents of children who chatter all the time.

A quick dart and i’m up the stairs, lightening on my feet A pounce, a jump, i’m on the bed, My moves are really neat I pad about on the comfy spread, making it soft for sleep and then I lay in luxury, a heap And as i dream of mice and birds, and wandering about someone shoo’s me off the bed © MIAOW i’ve been found out. —————————- This is…
