As I leave the tablecloth askew again

I frown one more time and some more

“Now out both of you double quick,

I’ll hear no excuses no more!

Look what my home has become

Do you think it is inhabitable any more?”

My kids giggle as is their wont

This tirade is nothing new

Every day on this stage

This act is repeated anew.

As I  stifle a smile, I very well know

Time is fleeting by so fast

I’ll miss all this when they go

And all this will be a thing of past.

So I let the clutter pile and leave the stained tablecloth

Let me savour this moment of bliss

I’ll fix the mess later as well as the tablecloth

When my tired bones are in need of a fix.
