Half Term Racket

My charges are both off school.
"What shall we do today?"
"Can we please go to Jesters,
The day's all dull and grey."

So I'm in a soft play centre,
There's a cacophony of sound,
Children, screaming, shrieking,
My head's starting to pound.

The children are having lots of fun,
Climbing, sliding, swinging,
But the raucous noise is deafening,
My eardrums are ringing.

I'm trying to get them to come home,
To leave this intense roar,
But they just shout as they run off,
"No, we want to play some more."

So if you think my jobs a doddle,
No more than child's play,
I can tell you it's no picnic
In this noisy place today.

Thank you. I scribbled this whilst they were playing....needed to do something to zone out from the noise!

I almost got a headache just reading this...I meant that in a funny way. :) You've painted this noisy and captive scene nicely Elizabeth.
