I prob’ly should not be a snitch I’m worried my Grandma’s a witch Cos I overheard My dad use that word He’s spot-on; I’ve seen her nose twitch! In secret she’s called the old bat (I must keep that under my hat) When we get out the car I must smile at Grandma And avoid her hissing black cat! Her kitchen exudes a foul smell Dad claims that it’s her latest spell When she mentions food We’re not being rude but exit her witch house from hell! I think she’s dad’s mother in law I have heard the phrase used before Her real name is Fanny I must call her Granny... She’s loaded, my parents are poor! Dad’s hoping when Gran kicks the bucket We’ll live in her house in Nantucket So I must visit her And put up with cat fur When Gran gives old candy I suck it! 9/6/19/

Thanks Juliet, your poem moved me to tears Juliet I know it happened a long time ago and hope it was cathartic to write about it.. I guess these things do shape the people we grow up to be:-) hugs Jan xx

Grandchildren are mostly naturally nice to their grandparents unless of course the in laws are a mite unpleasant and children, being as honest as they are, (if not told) will let the cat out of the bag, and then they will all remain poor! Great poem, Mother in laws and gran in laws seem to always have to face a firing squad, not that they don't need it sometimes. I really laughed with your poem Jan. Hugs, Jennifer.

thanks Connie I originally was doing 1 stanza but it just grew and grew lol:-) hugs Jan xx

LOL Well, if she's got the cat and creates spells, maybe this grandma really is a witch. Guess children are often told to be kind to their grandparents. Hate to think it's just a ploy to get an inheritance, but the poem is delightful and witty! Enjoyed this preview of Halloween, Jan. Love, Carolyn

Love it. Imaginative writing yet subject matter not too far from reality. Eccentricity is easily cultivated by all. best regards as always David in NZ
