Ooops! It’s All A little ♯

(TIME TO RING IN THE CHANGES)

I know that you blame me
Say it’s my fault it’s gone wrong
But in truth you need to see
The notes of your own song
Because there’s nothing melodic
Nor in harmony
With those who miss notes out
Play in a different key

So make some adjustments
Change your rhythm and pitch
And sort out those discords
To prevent further itch
And then, when the music
Has an inclusive score
It will play more in tune
Cause a lot less uproar!

Sharp

Diffuse Arguments (Haiku)

Diffuse arguments
With grace, love and forgiveness
Melting hearts and minds

Mistakes

It’s really very easy
If you slip up have the grace
To say you’re really sorry
And say it to the face
Of the person you have upset
For the problems you have made
Without hiding behind a veil
Or building barricades

For no-one’s really perfect
Few have gone through life without
Causing distress by their mishaps
Or raising voice to shout
But though it may seem hardest
Just bite the bullet quick
And make amends; do the right thing
Stop getting on their wick!

Testing Mum!

“I love you! Just not your behaviour!”
Mum smiled wanting to say
“Come on you brat you’re pushing me
You’re getting in my way
You’re plucking all my nerves
And pushing buttons so
You’re driving me quite crazy
It’s either me or you to go”

“You’re becoming quite a terror
I’m stressed beyond compare
I don’t get why you’re acting up
Now watch out and just beware
‘Cos if I really lose my rag
You’ll know it just you see
I’ll tell your DAD. You just wait!
You’ll go without your tea!”

But instead she smiled so sweetly
Bit her tongue – braced herself
As she loved that little rascal
Even when he was an elf
So she stopped before she started
And looked him in the eye
Holding back she took a deep breath
For he had no alibi

And then she quite calmly said it
Those words that meant so much
“I love you! Just not your behaviour
So sort it out and get in touch!
In touch and find that nicer lad
‘Cos recall there’ll be a fine
If you continue down this road
And fail to toe the line!”

Then she continued in the same vein
Without emotion or despair
Pulling him up so very short
He knew she was being fair
For everything she said was right
And he knew he had been wrong
But most of all by all accounts
He’d changed before too long!
