Party Time

PARTY TIME!
( A Poem for Children)

It's party time! it's party time!
And aren't we having fun.
We've got some fizzy lemonade ,
Enough for everyone.
Benny's dog bit Sammy
And little Sammy cried,
So Benny had to take his dog
And stand with him outside.
Then Ivan let his pink balloon
Float off into the sky,
So Ivan was another one
To have a little cry.
The lady and the gentleman
Who live in the flat below,
Said 'Kindly stop that awful row'
And the Birthday Boy yelled 'No!".
Lucy turned up rather late
And we wouldn't let her in!
She sobbed and howled and stamped her foot!
You should have heard the din!
A Policeman came to arrest us!
He thought there'd been a crime.
I hope next year is just as good
When it comes to Party Time!

DISSECTION

Lines and angles,
Shadow tangles
Plus a touch of dissection.
Elongations,
Indications
Of light from many directions.

I love that, "And the Birthday Boy yelled, No!"
That's a party with a built-in headache for mum, I think.
Great fun!
