MESS! (inspired by my daughter Mia)

Pretext

My  daughter is 7 years old and  whilst we are on a school term break, she has to learn and recite from memory a poem she chosen from several handed out by her class teacher. she chose beautifully written poem called Yuck. Here I attempt (in my own innocent style) a similar themed prose that tries to hit the same marks, based on the inspired choice ( I might add) of poem originally selected. Here goes…

MESS!

You all have to learn to wipe

When you visit the loo

I’m fed up of getting my hands

Anywhere near your poo…

 

You’ve just eaten some raw egg

Now a mouth full of jam, stale milk and beans

I can see that you’re about to cough

And I know just what that means

 

A shower of yuckie food

Flying through the air

Luckily I moved just in time

The MESS only caught my hair!

 

Looking after all of you

Involves a lot of stress

It doesn’t mean I don’t love you

I could do without the MESS!

 

Marvel (ous) Universe Begins- Part 1

 

The Strength of the HULK

The speed of IRON MAN

To beat you to a pulp

Or crush you like a tin can

 

The God-like power of the THOR

The return of CAPTAIN AMERICA’s Steve

The action, never will it bore

Or make you want to get up and leave

 

The mind altering prowess of XAVIER

The cutting, sharpness of the WOLVERINE

Could Charles be mankind’s ultimate saviour?

A showstopper if put on our screens…

 

Would Jean Grey ‘lift’ our wilting mood

Could MAGNETO ‘attract’ our me(n)tal attention?

If they had children  – what an awesome brood

The road to mutant revolution or cessation?

 

Eye wonder how CYCLOPS sees things?

The intelligent BEAST would confur maybe?

The future is here for super human beings

Shield’s response would be swift and scathing?

 

What does Fury know

You understand he could be mimicked by Raven

Her effervescent  camouflage never shows

As she cleverly hides inside her own little haven

 

Sticking to our human nature we look to the AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

Is he related to the mysterious BLACK WIDOW?

He lives in an apartment no bigger than a tin can

This Russian keeps secrets she wants no one else to know

 

Apparently an apocalyptic event is upon us

Will we be rescued and at what cost?

A few mum’s and Dad’s with some extra Vitamin B+?

I’m waiting to be saved by a certain Emma Frost….
