I am telling mum

‘I’m gunna tell mum on you, you’re going to be in trouble, How ever long you’re grounded for, I’ll make sure it’s double! I’m gunna say you stole my lolly, I’ll tell her it was you, And then I might just say you stole my pocket money too’. ‘I didn’t steal your pocket money, I didn’t steal you lolly, And if you tell mother you’ll be well and truly sorry. Mother can see through your lies, that’s something you will find, Because she’s heard every word you said, she’s standing right behind!’ • Went to se a film with my grandchildren Millie and Harry. Harry can be naughty sometimes and Millie said ‘I’m going to tell Mum!’

G'day Ronald … a bit like a couple of my grandkids Ronald, but you have to be on the spot to get the truth - enjoyed your verse - Lindsay

Arbitrating can be challenging and as you say you have to be on the spot!! Thanks for the comment. Ron :)

Ha, ha! Tables turned so nicely. And satisfyingly for us males, who take it on the chin in these situations way too often! Thanks, Ron! Smiles, Gershon
