When Mama ain't happy ...

Image (c) 2007, Karla Dorman

... the clouds lower until
they touch the ground;
hands of anger throw
my toys across the land.
A Voice roars:  "If you
can't learn to take care
of what I've given, you
don't need them."  Think

I'm grounded.  Should
have cleaned my room...

(c) 2008, Karla Dorman (6/10)

Furious black cloud, looks tornado like to me. Smoke going all around. A child seeing her things going astrew would be quite upset, even if they don't take care of them, they still want them when needed. I so love to watch children at play on their little riding toys with their legs going so fast. Fury is a great poem.

Good metaphor! Many a time I've felt like she's givin me a good spankin when I've got dirty and wet at the beach, but at least, in this instance, her fury is perhaps a righteous indignation. We've toyed with her patience long enough, I fear... Another great write, Karla. Kate xx
