Aunt Mabel

by Paganini Jones

Thinking children should be seen, not heard
Aunt Mabel bought a large, foreign bird,
Two labradors and a dozen cats.
Oh how she regrets not taking the brats.

They squabble, catawaul and fight.
They eat everything edible left in sight.
Such a shame she forgot just one small rule:
Such children would have gone to school.

What wonderful succinct evaluations of overall situations you are crafting... musical, humorous and wise!
