stereo-typical-saturday

 

kids up too early

cranked TV up

LOUD

running up & down

the stairs with nerf

guns

whooping-it-up

you decide it’s time to

MOM UP

and whip-up breakfast

before natives turn

entire

house upside-down;

sssshhhh, don’t wake

~ UP ~

your father now!

 

 


44-word quadrille for dVerse Poets where De chose the word (you guessed it):  UP!

“ninja”

 

my mom’s a secret ninja

she’s trained~yes, that’s a fact

in ancient arts of sabotage

(it’s cooking skills she lacks)

she’s stealthy and she’s deadly

~real domestic arson hack~

our kitchen sink is piled high

with pots that she burned black!

 

 

 


Just for fun…you didn’t assume it was (auto)biographical, did you?!
