HOMESICK EXCUSES from a child

HOMESICK EXCUSES So sorry….. I can’t spend the night-- Would give my daddy jitter fright. My mother would not sleep at all, If I don’t kill bugs as they crawl. If I ‘m not there to scrub the sink, Neither one would sleep a wink. I can’t spend the night--- Nightmares will chase them left to right. If I don’t stay with mom and dad, Who’ll keep my dog from getting sad? I can’t spend the night. I would like to, But isn’t right. Must tuck my daddy safe in bed, Listen to the prayers he’s said. Kiss my mother on her face-- So she knows I’m in my place. I would love to stay with you, But my parents need me too!
