#AprilPrompts – Day 16 – Hospital – #NaPoWriMo

22 Apr

Warning – This is a gross poem!


I'm not going to that place,
You cannot make me go.
There's really nothing to it.
I only scraped my toe.

You certainly are going.
Get in the car right now.
If you don't get looked at,
Your dad will have a cow!

Hospital, Smospital,
There's no way I will go.
That place always scares me.
The nail just cut my toe.

Oh no, you must be kidding!
It was a nail you say?
I must call the hospital,
To say we're on our way!

You're acting crazy Mamma,
Please don't make a fuss.
It doesn't even hurt me.
There isn't too much pus.

I think I just might faint!
Ooh, I'm feeling sick!
Wrap a towel around your foot.
Get in the car, be quick. Okay, okay, I'm going! My foot's begun to twitch. You know, I think you're right Mom. I just might need a stitch.

      It’s so true Gerri. I remember my parents taking my two brothers all the time…it’s a wonder they made it to adulthood! :0)

    Pointed humor – so great! The one line I find iffy is the one about the dad having a cow; most families I know it’d be the mom stressing out and the dad being more nonchalant πŸ˜‰ Great progression, and I like that you didn’t specify the child’s gender.

      Dad would have a cow if he told his kid a thousand times to stay out of that old fort in the woods. ;0)

      Ah, makes sense! Guess I was such an obedient child, my mind didn’t go there haha

      Me too, but my brother was a nightmare …the “wait till your father gets home!” Kind of kid=dad has cow ;0)
