The rain fell, the wind howled
I made the toast whilst they watched and scowled
"Please oh please wont you take us today?"
"We'll get soaked out there and it is on your way".
"Alright" I replied whilst stirring my tea
"YIPPEE" yelled The Teens leaping with glee
"I'm leaving in five so don't muck around,
If your not ready then your gonna get drowned".
To the car we all ran, umbrellas up high
The dog sensed my panic and started to cry
She looked at him and I knew there was trouble
I started the car and sped off on the double.
"For Gods sake move over, your hogging the seat"
"Oh shut up you Diva and get your bag off my feet"
"Muuuummmmm" she cried "I cant fit it all in"
"Try packing less makeup" he said with a grin.
I wanted to turn and scream at them "NO"
But the car was steamed up and we needed to go
"She's got soooo much stuff" he turned and yelled at her
"And now look" he said "She's crushed my Ciabatta".
I pulled up outside and sighed with relief
"OH NO" said the boy "I haven't done my teeth"
"There's no time for that, here have some gum.
Now get out the car and bloody well RUN"
I arrived back at home feeling quite in a muddle
Stepped out of the car and straight into a puddle
That's it I thought I'm cancelling today
Indoors I will go and there I will stay.
