Lunch Question Time.




LUNCH QUESTION TIME!

The family sat down to eat;
The Minister was a guest.
Mother had baked a special meal;
The crockery was her best.
Tom was minding his manners
As he'd been told to do;
The conversation was polite
Though boring, that is true.
The Minister was rambling on
About this thing and that;
You couldn't really say
It was a very thrilling chat.
But suddenly Tom looked puzzled
And paused with his knife and fork.
'Mum' he said 'This meat is nice
But it tastes to me like pork!'
'It is pork, dear' said Mother,
Smiling and being charming,
Not expecting the bombshell
Would be quite so alarming.
'But I heard you talking to Dad' said Tom......
And he stopped the meal mid-munch.
'I heard you say 'I suppose it's time
We had the old goat for lunch.'

Funny and the perfect word for the letter Q. There is never a dull moment with kids around.

Too much. I remember the time my little cousin answered the door and told his mother, "Ma, the lady you call silly twit is here." My aunt, always alert, said, "No dear, she just left."

Well, you had me until the last line and then as they say, 'I lost it!' So humerous and perfect.

With due respect but still unable to resist the temptation of writing - " the old goat must've bleated and taken to its heels..!!" :))))

Brian Miller said...

Excellent prose poem, Brenda. How you many to conceive quite so many of these is beyond me. And the standard you set yourself is so very high.

Great stuff.

Tom said...
