I need to clarify… I have no point of reference for this short story. None at all. Stop looking at me like that! My health is on the line here!
Some stories teach us new things,
some stories act as warnings.
This ones here to tell you,
to not wake mum in the morning.
I think it best to explain to you,
The perils plain to see,
If you get your mum up out of bed,
before she’s had some tea.
With out a morning cup of tea,
and five minutes on the couch.
you run the risk of waking up,
the mummy monster grouch.
I knew some boys, aged nine and ten,
who didnt heed this rule,
they woke their mummy up early,
it really wasnt cool.
The mummy monster was summoned,
and came stomping from her room,
too late the boys realised their fate,
and ran screaming from their doom!
The mummy monster lurched after them
and gave them both a scare,
they screamed and ran away from her,
and legged it down the stairs.
She followed after them slowly,
into the kitchens ran her sons,
there was the sound of running taps,
and they put the kettle on.
The mummy monster caught them,
but they managed to struggle free,
and quickly they distracted her,
with a freshly made cup of tea.
The Mummy monster went away,
and away went the mommy grouch,
and normal mummy came back,
and settled on the couch.
The mummy monster grouch scares dad,
and the best thing he has said,
is that maybe next time it would be best,
to leave mummy monster in bed.
