I'll scream and shout...whine and pout
grit my teeth...stomp my feet
moan an groan...refuse to eat

I'll slam the door...roll on the floor
hold my breath til I turn blue
chew my sock...throw my shoe

I'll slurp and burp...burp and slurp
spit in my drink...plug up the sink
Yikes hold on!...let me think

It's so hard... this being bad
yet I could do it...I know I could
but maybe today...I'll just stay good

Pat, you're permitted to be bad, or thin k of being bad,
as long as you continue to turn out gems like this. I
like your rhyme scheme. -gene.

Nice surprise ending, just when I expected you to be really, really bad! This is so cute!

Nice movement and rhythm, Pat,
and just the right effects throughout.

Good schmood. First stanza yesterday did it all except for dinner, sausages and kraut. Second stanza did it all except hold my breath, that's reserved for my night sleep. Third stanza did it all plus plugged the toilet. Amateur.

Sometimes it is fun to be bad. Nicely written piece.

Just remember, you can be as 'good' or as 'bad' as you want to be...because you are the boss of you.

You call that bad? You've got a lot to learn girl. Like it though, as always. Thanks Dick

Another delightful concoction, Pat. Nice flow too. There is a typo in the first verse of the second stanza ("sleam"). Thanks for sharing. Love and best wishes,
