WHO AM I

The doctor called me little babe,
My parents call me Rob
When I was bad my Mum would wail
And then let out a sob.

“Oh madammuck”, she’d say to me
What is it that you do
Why do you always act that way
And give me grief from school. 

One day I took the row boat out
And then stayed out all  day
The anger in my father’ face
Made coming home a tale

He took my hand and slapped me hard
And said I was so wrong
Oh Mum I asked, “Why are you mad”
I wasn’t gone that long!

We were very worried she said to me
Your only eight years old
We didn’t know just where you were
We’ve been terrified all day

Well I said like madammuck
“Why do you hit me then”
“If you were worried like you said,
Give me a hug instead!!!”

The years have passed; I’ve grown some
More  years than in my age
I’m still the same within my mind
Strong willed and blazing trails!!!
