Mum was in the kitchen,
Dad was on the loo.
Jimmy was in the hallway,
He was kissing auntie Pru.
The dog was in the bathtub,
The cat was climbing a rope.
The canary was screaming blue murder,
As the dog hit the cat with a bar of soap!
The cat dived into the water.
The dog jumped onto the loo.
Dad ran into the hallway
And hit Jimmy with his shoe.
Mum grabbed her sister by the collar,
‘Leave my son alone,’ she yelled.
The cat ran down the stairs dripping water.
As mum opened the door and Pru was expelled.
The dog made his way into the kitchen,
Where the cat lay damp but at peace.
Jimmy was the centre of mum’s attention,
But there was a knock on the door from her niece!
Pru’s daughter had come to avenge her mother
Who she thought had been insulted and spurned.
It was all of them who she was really after,
As there was a lesson that needed to be learned.
‘Mum was here on a peaceful mission.
She came to wish young Jimmy good luck.
He’s off to the sea tomorrow morning,
But your minds are full of muck.’
Mum went back to her kitchen.
Dad went out to his shed.
The police called the very next morning
And found seven bodies laying dead.
The moral of this story is the most obvious.
Keep an eye on auntie Pru.
But if you must have altercations,
Lock the door to the privy and the loo.
