NEVER OFF DUTY

Come on you lot wakey wake A start of another crazy day Give the comatosed children a chant Dash to the bathroom now it's vacant No time for a rest or sleep Just on the go cup of tea Uniforms pressed and shoes scrubbed Presented to my two grouchy cherubs Breakfast time can be unreal He wants toast, she wants cereal Fruit and veg for their box Time for school, ready you lot? Walk my lovelies for exercise Get back just after nine Too tired to eat straight to bed Out like a light blowing my zzz Soon be time to get up To go fetch my little cherubs Prepare our meal before I leave Help with homework before we eat Prepare my box full of snacks Shower then my uniform is back Babysitter's running a little late A mad rush out the gate Step onto my favourite ward No time to stop and talk Cries for nurse and buzzers Keep me even more busier Change beds, mop it all up Help feed and change Mr Jessup Medicine dispensing with caution Cannot give the wrong portion Have five minutes eat a pair On the go no time to spare Mr Drinkwater's health has declined Call in the family, it's time Comfort the loved one's in grief One last round before I leave Walking home pick up some bread Making plans for the next day ahead

Wow - what a whirlwind schedule you/they have. A tale nicely told. Linda
