Parents' Party Day.jpg


By Josie Whitehead

It's Parents' Party Day

When children all go back to school

    What do their parents do?

You cannot think?  You do not know?

    You haven't got a clue?


They have a party - all of them!

     They eat and drink and scream,

For a home without you noisy kids

     Is every parent's dream.


The music's on, the dancing starts;

    The eats and drinks come out.

They're eating things you're not allowed,

     Of that there is no doubt.


They'll ask you, later in the day:

      'Have you worked hard today?' -

Whilst they've been partying all day

      With children sent away.


The beds aren't made; no housework's done.

      It's parents' time to play -

For, with naughty, noisy kids packed off

     It's 'Parents' Party Day.'
