Your breath smells rotten,
And you’re overweight  too
Did I mention selfish?
How could I not do?
You don’t even really like my dogs.

My children are a Godsend,
But not to you…
Oh yes, my daughter
Gives you plenty of laughs,
But that’s just her just playing you.
Really, you’re poles apart

Do you really think she’d visit,
When you move out?
My son is going to miss you
Because of DSTV,
He couldn’t stand the fighting
And your attitude.
He is more real, and likes it fair,
Truth or dare?
We really miss you, 
We all really love you,
And wish you were here.

    It is exciting to see the replenishment of new poetry here everyday when I log on. I enjoy the diverse poetry so I am never bored by most of what I read. I am happy to have read your poetry this morning Tanya. I hope that you might be able to find the time to read some of the other poetry here also. Love, Carol
