Twas The Night Before School Starts

Twas the night before school starts, when all through the house
All the children were whining, including the spouse.
The clothes were laid out, disheveled at best,
The mommy ecstatic to empty her nest.

The children were tossing around in their beds
While nightmares of homework haunted their heads.
With momma on her laptop and dad in a mood,
She smiled widely while he darkly stewed.

When in the kids rooms there arose such a clatter,
Mommy sprang from her work to see what was the matter.
It was just one of the children piteously crying
Mommy just shrugged because no one was dying.

The moon it shone brightly, the stars were a’winking
And Mommy couldn’t help but sigh as she was thinking.
The kids would be gone now for most of the day,
And now it was her time, she’d get to play.

Now homework! Now schedules! But late in the day
So many free hours she’d spend her own way.
To drop the kids off! To send them to school!
Her hubby at work! The mom was no fool!

She was excited and happy as she went to bed
She set her alarm clock that was next to her head.
Closing her eyes she falls into deep slumber,
6:15 is the magical number.

The alarm awakens her with a start
Her husband stirs and then loudly farts.
She rises from bed to wake up the brood
Ignoring the fact they’re in a foul mood.

She kissed them goodbye and hurried them out
She watched for a moment, they stomp and they pout.
In the kitchen her husband slams down his joe
She kisses him and tells him it’s time that he go.

With everyone gone, she’s alone, it’s her break!
She whoops and she dances, and coffee she makes.
She exclaimed to no one, because no one’s in sight,
Finally in her world, all is quite right!
