I think this wants to be a poem when it grows up.


Alarm clock ringin, the kids are screamin
over a cereal box
put an end to world war three
now everybody find your socks

No you can't wear your hair like that
don't forget to lock the door
and feed the cat
I won't forget to iron your best shirt
as soon as I get home from work

As soon as I get home from work
I'll help you with your math
and spelling words
just let me get this laundry in
and dinner on the stove
your field trip is tomorrow, yeh I know
we'll get it all done,
you'll get there on time
as soon as I get home from work


I've got a million things on my mind
til a million and one comes up from behind
and says mama - do you have time?
and it hurts
to say, as soon as I get home from work

Such a busy life....autobiographical?
It sounds as though its pretty real.
Nicely descriptive.
