My nanny

I am a passionate poet out to share my works with the world. If you enjoy my poetry, you can support me by buying me a coffee at --- https://www.buymeacoffee.com/GIDRAF






A sorry creature
Scuttling and hurtling
Washing the dishes
Tripping on the carpet

Mopping the table
Arranging the table-cloth
Filling the vase
Crashing it on the sink

Carrying bags and baggages
Of filthy clothes of mine
Rummaging through them
She pricks on the nappy pin

Perched precariously on sill
Washing the window pane
Is a shiny glass pail
That smoothly slides over

When mommy comes home
She crouches in fear
At the kitchen recess
Shaking uncontrollably

My mother puffs and pants
Ranting at the broken crockery
Yapping at the smashed vase
Yelling at the crashed pail

‘’You nanny!!!!!!’’
