Poem of the Day


A huge mistake

By Jenny Erlanger


I’ve taken our rubbish bins out to the street.

I’ve helped wash and vacuum the car.

My bedroom is finally looking as neat

as all of the other rooms are.

I’ve weeded the garden, the front and the back.

I’ve cut up the veggies for tea.

I’ve dried all the dishes Mum left in the rack

and now I’m as tired as can be.

I’ve brought in the clothes ’cause it’s going to rain,

I think I deserve a reward.

I made a mistake when I chose to complain

of feeling so terribly bored!

  1. What a great poem, albeit pure fantasy – if I could get our kids to do even one or two of the chores you mention, I would be a happy man 🙂
