The 'Not-Me' Monster
~Marge Tindal~ 1999

When my kids were
young and small,
The 'Not-Me' Monster
came to call.

No matter what the problem,
they'd always shout with glee ...
Not me ! Not me ! Not me !

Through all the years of 'Who-dun-its',
I never did find out ...
exactly where
the 'Not-Me' Monster hung out.

In the blinking of an eye,
they were gone, full-grown.
Now each of them have
a 'Not-Me' Monster of their own !

I laugh when I hear the antics
as they find something to blame ...
on The 'Not-Me' Monster...
who still has no other name !

Well, maybe your kids were like that....but "Not me?"...Of course I was an exceptional child, never into mischief..Just a perfect angel. Very cute poem.....brings back memories....(my brothers were always saying "Not me"....Toerag done it!

Toe - Well, your brothers were probably right! Toe did it ! Toe did it !
The 'No-Toe' Monster did it !

Suthern - You're right ... I think it IS Toe.
And to think ... I thought my kids were making the monster up !

Hoot - See, that little monster is everywhere !

Who said that? 'NOT ME'

My poor sweet much-abused Toerag... getting blamed for everything... even in places he's never visited!!! LOL.

And Balladeer: After that picture in Q&A, I'd go easy on the knock-kneed comments if I were you! ROFL!!
