Birthday Chant…

Hello Poetry Lovers.

Yes, it’s nearly that time of year when birthday celebrations raise their head. Mine’s three weeks before Christmas – Bore! – as Dobby would say!

What can you do with a birthday like that?! So to air even more grudges, I penned a birthday chant. Chant poems are great fun, and worth doing. A nice lockdown project maybe?

Anyway read on for more whinging……

Birthday Chant (A Grudge Poem)

On my tenth birthday, I got a toy horse.

A party was out of the question of course.

But I really wanted a Tiny Tears doll!

Gran got me Playdough, my smile

became thin.

I thanked her profusely as it went in the bin

But I really wanted a Tiny Tears doll!

Was there no end of crap presents today?!

Oh, a construction set! Cheers, auntie Gaye!

But I really wanted a Tiny Tears doll!

Mum baked a cake, the icing was pink.

I pigged the lot and was sick in the sink.

But I really wanted a Tiny Tears doll!

Phew! Feel better after that little rant! Been holding that one back for years! How have your birthdays been? I defy anyone to tell us about presents that were even worse than mine!

Do not hesitate to fill us in!

Thanks for tuning in, PL’s. Be back real soon…….
