Home Time

Home Time
Form: Raven’s Rovi Sonnet 54

As the kids came in from a long school day
They threw their bags onto its smooth pine top
And grabbing a bite before time to play
As I cook the dinner, something and mash
While on the table the school bags must wait
And homework books to be done in a dash
Unless it was Friday chips on the plate
That algebra giving us all a rash
And between mouthfuls make it go away
Washing up as the new stories are read
Some TV time before it gets too late
Time to relax, let go a bit and stop
They drift to sleep to the dreams in their head
With the kiss good night all tucked into bed
