Ten Tired Parents

I think this is an absolutely hilarious poem, so just had to share it!

A Certain Point of View

TEN tired parents
Nursing evening wine
One moved onto vodka
And that left…

NINE tired parents
Gossiping at the gate
One stepped into the road

EIGHT tired parents
Talking about heaven

And that left…

SEVEN tired parents
With DIY to fix
One got electrocuted
And that left…

SIX tired parents
Washing up the knives
One slipped and cut themself
And that left…

FIVE tired parents
Wanting something more
One had a midlife crisis
And that left…

FOUR tired parents
As tired as can be
One passed out in Tesco
And that left…

THREE tired parents
Too sleep-deprived to chew
One choked on a biscuit
And that left…

TWO tired parents
Nagging, no longer fun,
One realised they’d become their parents
And that left…

ONE tired parent
Sitting all alone
They’d left baby in the trolley
When they’d driven home!

TEN tired parents
Back together…
