Monster Mum is on the rampage
she’s hurtling through the house,
be as quiet as a mouse.
You always know she’s coming
with her mighty thundering walk,
and the eyes of the furniture gawk.
She descends on the room
towering and strong,
don’t get it wrong.
‘What’s all that noise?’ she roars
and ‘look at all those pens!’
‘How many times have I told you,
why can’t you just be friends?’
There’s no use telling a lie
no use spinning a line,
Monster Mum knows all your secrets
can find the truth every time.
But just as they whisper in the corner
Monster Mum melts on the spot,
‘If you tidy this mess and lay the table,
then I guess I’ll forget the lot.’
You see Monster Mum can be really gentle
she praises the good that you’ve done,
she pins up your drawings
she plays your games,
she makes sure you have lots of fun.
Monster Mum is always on the prowl
looking for something to eat,
a spoonful of kindness
a slice of naughtiness,
anything to give her a treat!
