Twas the night before school
And all through the house
Not a creature was stirring
Not even the mouse

The children were quiet
And all snug in their beds
With visions of Passions
Floating in their heads

Now I was confident
That all was well
So I was off to bed
To sleep for a spell

I had just laid down
When all of a sudden
I heard a noise
And I went a'runnin

And what did I see
When I burst in the den?
The kids were on
The computer again

"Now kids," I said
"It's after three
Can't you wait till tomorrow
To read poetry?"

"NO," they cried
In unison
"Don't make us get off
The computer again!"

I tapped my foot
And narrowed my eyes
Then what they said
Made me gasp in suprise

"Mom, we have a problem
Why can't you see?
We're hopelessy addicted
To PiP!"

Very cute sys...and I can relate. My son has really been getting into reading alot of the poetry posted here at PiP. Someday he may even try his hand at writing.

This piece rocks well, my friend. Addiction is a good term for it.

You go, gal, and, by the way, if your kids DO start some reading, you will need to padlock the "Adult" "Toe" and "'Deer" sections now and then...so beware...

Thanks again everyone for the replies. The idea for this one came to me while I was trying to sleep....so I ran downstairs, jotted it on paper, briefly considered posting it then, but I couldn't see straight,I was so tired, so I just waited for the next day.
