The kids went back to school today
I’m very happy, what can I say.
Seven long weeks, they’ve been at home
Driving me past, my comfort zone.
They tried my patience, tested my will
I bit my nails, took a strong pill.
We argued and fought, kissed and made up
I poured more wine, took a big sup.
A trip to the Farm, sounds easy enough
A nose bitten by, Billy Goat Gruff.
There were buckets of tears, tantrums galore
chain smoking mums, passed out on the floor.
Fathers who worked, from dawn until dusk
Mothers who screamed, until a vein bust.
Endless days, I thought would not end
wonderful days, I hope come again!.
