Poor Aunt Maude


Sitting bored I sat and sighed
How inconvenient old aunt Maud had died
I wouldn’t be here if the old bat was still talking
Watching the relatives sipping and walking
Gestures of sadness filled the room
When holding a drink George fell over a broom
Sister sue was covered in sherry
Everyone shrieked when George landed on Jerry 

Jerry was happy, as he thought his luck had changed 
Poor old George blushed as their looks exchanged 
Not a sigh, no one was bored 
They were all running around 
Look like they had ants in their pants good lord 
In all their excitement someone passed wind 
Open a window lets have a glass of gin 
I wonder who knocked Aunt Maud’s ashes in the bin

Oh my gawd what a sin auntie’s ashes in the bin
No one noticed as the gin began to flow
Sue once on the sherry was now snogging Joe
They all looked on with smiley faces
Jerry now tipsy was tweaking Malcolm’s braces
What a farce I jumped up quick
Not one to miss an opportunity click, click, click
Poor aunt Maud in the bin covered in George’s puking sick

    Oh my goodness, Allie! This would make a wildly funny scene in a movie. I felt like I was right there, ashamed of myself for laughing at the antics as we tried to pay our respects to Poor Aunt Maud! Very witty! Love, Carolyn

    Very funny stuff, I liked the way you took a depressing time and theme and placed a smile on my face. A. W.
