I'm three years old,
my mummy asks me?
"What ya wanna be when ya grow up,
"A serial killer mummy,
After that she hide the knifes?
[Puzzlement] covered my face, now that's
a big word for someone who's three, spell
check if you want to see.....
"Baby you ok?
[Puzzlement,] "I know go me. She looked
as I did was this look was it somewhat
[contagious] "I know I'm three,
"Yes mummy I'm a cereal killer. I plunge
my spoon in to my breakfast till it seeps
milk then when I've finished I bury it.
"Bury it, yes in the bin mummy there
remains rot and make fertilizer.
"My mummy looked relived,
But I didn't tell her I bury them in the garden,
in the little black bags in the flower bed.
Decaying cereal feeding the flowers nourishment.
In the arms of your mother you blink into the sunshine.
And her eyes glisten with the love she never imagined.
You've been a long time coming, little one.
She has waited for you for decades,
A timeless twinkle in her smile.
And she has suffered.
But looking into your eyes
She knows it's been worth it.
You were worth her pain.
You are all the love she has ever felt.
And all the love she never knew she had.
You have completed her.
And you will never know how much you mean to her
And how much she prayed for you.
How much we all prayed for you.
But you will always know how loved you are.
Welcome to the world, little one.
You're going to love it.
All he wanted was a sunny day but those
clouds would just not go away.
He asked them politely;
"Excuse me sirs and madams please would
you move away just for this one day,
You may ask the difference of clouds?
the madam clouds are purely white they
some times rain a little upon my head.
Where the sirs are the moody grey clouds,
I asked them to leave and now I'm soaked from
my tiny toes below to every part of my head.
"I beg your pardon, why did you only rain on
this one spot, only soaking me and no one else?
So I thought of a plan and got my mummy's
fan pointing it towards the sky, I turned it on
I thought it would take a while.
"A while later,
I looked up to find more clouds then there was
before? was it because I only used Number one?
so I turned up to the highest Number 3.
"A while later,
A look of confusion! as there seemed to be no
movement, but again more than before.
"Mummy I think your fan works in reverse,
So a little man thought, to his toy box he went.
Mummy I'll just be in the back garden, the wind
was blowing blustery, he smiled, its was just right.
Pointing his trusty bow upwards, thinking that
if he could pop one after another, they would
whoosh away and he would get his sunny day.
Away it flew, upward and onwards, so high
like a little bird flying then it fell faster than a
leaky balloon "Bonk, it went as it hit the floor.
This little man with frustration on his face,
thinking thoughts of what went wrong?
"I know I need to get higher up, clouds are high you know,
How many arrows would I need for a sunny day,
he looked in his arrow pack.
That was enough he thought, they were quite heavy
to take up that rather big hill. Off he went, bow and
arrows and his idea of a sunny day not far away.
Out of breath but at the top of the world or so
it felt. "I wonder if I can touch the clouds?
His hand reaching up standing on his tip toes.
"I could pull them away, or put them in my bag for another day,
But alas he was just out of reach, his fingers couldn't
stretch that far, even on his little tippy toes.
So his arrows in hand, there little suction cups pointing
towards the sky. The first arrow off it flew quite far but landed
so way down the hill. "Not high enough, a tear in his eye.
Then Number two, Number Three shot off higher than
the ones he let go of before. But none could reach those
clouds up high, and he cradled his hand and began to cry.
Now the wind hears everything, voices carry on the wind
you know. It heard this little boys tears and couldn't let
them fall like the clouds anymore.
So it whispered to each one a favour it asked,
"Clouds of white, clouds of grey, could you please
wonder to another place for an hour or day?
"Just let this little child have his sunny day, no tears
should fall like the clouds hanging up today,
With that a gentle breeze picked up, and one by one the
clouds did wander off. One was stubborn grey, but with
a gentle nudge he did move slowly off and away.
A gust of wind kissed the boys face. Eyes wiped he looked up,
not a cloud in the sky, nope not one.Smiling he ran collecting
his bow & arrows as he ran down.
"Mummy, Mummy, the clouds have wondered off
the fan didn't work? my arrows couldn't go high enough.
But the breeze kissed them all away.
And so a little boy and his mummy went outside,
playing games in the sun, till the sun began to yawn
on the horizon telling mummy it was time nearly for bed.
So a little man was tucked up in bed, he thanked the
wind, "Thank you, and thanked the clouds "Thank you,
For he got to play with his mummy outside on a sunny day.
In '85 I modelled my hair on Bono
YouTube "U2 Live Aid"
that was my look of choice
my credibility never made the grade
I worked in a rough ass warehouse
with men twice my age
my teenage angst and obstreperousness
regularly put them in a rage
One day I was wrapped in tape
bound up like an Egyptian mummy
thrown in an industrial waste bin
calling me a mullet head and dummy
Spun around and around
then left out on a road
my shouts for help unanswered
my temper set to explode
A passing engineer heard my wailing
and took pity on my plight
seeing me inside the rubbish
gave him a terrible fright
I was tipped out to the pavement
and freed from my imprisonment
I needed taking down a peg or two
but felt I was totally innocent
Today you would call it bullying
back then they said it was horseplay
I never forgot my mummified condition
I learned my lesson the hard way
These kids did run around playful in chat,
the stories they told when bedtime called
and eyes meant closed shut.
Nannie came in, my littlest ones, eyes
are for closure for dreams to fill your
mind, now rest my smallest kids.
Morning my little ones now breakfast time
greets, drink your milk and chew you
greens the most important meal indeed.
Now go brush your hair no knots need
be seen, my little kids presentable and
clean. Now out and play stay close to me.
Inquisitive young ones, seeing things never
once seen. always wondering from sight till
nannie does call and running their seen.
"Sweet dreams my kids now I hope you brushed
your horns and cleaned your teeth,
So smart are these kids of mine, nannie smiles
as each one she kisses as eyes slumber to sleep.
I'm such a proud mummy who does love her kids.
My son wrote this....!! (He's 8!)
Oh it is so sunny outside
There is the sun it will make
You blind if you look at it
There is a hill in the background
Look at the tree on the floor
Let's go out & explore
Putting on your shoes
Have you tied them up right
Putting on your shoes
Years had past since PTD's cases, all was now
Play and fun. But the little man missed
The chase of what could be found
Of what was hidden from view. He was
A bright young fellow now
Six years old.
Words are longer as gurgles faded into
Memories past thoughts. He had come
Home to mummy,
"How's my little man,
"I have a loose toothy peg Mummy,
"Well no playing,
"As we don't want it lost for the tooth fairy,
So little man played with his cars
"That was close the baddies nearly caught us,
He played till it started to get dark, then heard
His mummy calling from down stairs.
"Little man time to get ready for bed sweet heart,
"Ok mummy I'm changing now,
A jumper did fly socks also too,
Trousers flew in the air landing waist
Side up on his head too.
Times of an imagination as he runs around.
But in to jimjams he must now do,
his favourite ones were
Captain Carrot Space Ranger.
He has all the books reading them to sleep
His favourite story before he slumbers in to dreams.
~Captain Carrots Space Race~
Trix sat in his comfy seat, his friends
All waiting for his words of as the race was
Set in the dust nebula Atria
Its dark in space only stars glitter.
But in the dust cloud it was like rainbows blossomed
A light show of the universal beauty.
Right my fluffiest friends its time to launch.
Rockets ignited and away they went,
Captain Trix was nibbling on a cucumber stick.
Then from no where the naughty Cat Captain Frost
Bashed and knocked at their ship, and off the
Race course they fell. They tumbled into a pocket of
Darkest space. Captain its dark in here, the lights
Faded and all was dark. Trix could hear teeth chattering.
Be calm my friends, there is nothing scary in the shadows.
Take out your carrot coins, and nibble, chew,
And with that, once finger licked and all was chomped
All that was heard was trix voice, right can we all
See? yes captain carrot vison is a go.
They set a course out of this darkest place and
Out they popped into normal space, colours gleamed
As they saw they were in last place.
Rockets burst into action and they flew in
And out, weaving through the clouds
One pasted, two pasted, three pasted
Now they were in second place.
Who should be in first place naughty Captain Frost
He had a coat as white as snow. but that was
As far as his niceness did go. He was a naughty
Kitty and everyone did know.
Sir he is blocking our path, we cant get through
Ok secret decoy time fluffy friends.
Cats attention set adrift sir, and into space it wondered,
In sight of Captain Frosts view. Out came the holding
Claws, and the space wool did bobble and excitement
Was the pleasure of kitties day. While they entertained
Themselves, Captain Trix did glide on past.
Full speed ahead as they race past the finish line.
Yawns were the calling of the night as the story
Ended as eyes blinked soon to be shut
"Mummy Captain Carrot [Trix] won the race,
"Yes he did darling and that's why meanies are always last,
"Sweet dreams my baby now off to sleep,
The night drew on as eyes slept through, and little
Mans dreams were of carrots and rabbits
That whizzed through the night sky, ZOOM.
Morning broke through his curtains and
Yawns did come and go. Slippers were
On as cold it felt, and downstairs
He wondered dressing gown and all.
"Mummy what's for breakfast?
"Was that me Mummy?
"Open wide little man, goodness me....,
"There is a gap where there should be a tooth?
"O' no I have a missing toothy peg,
"Potty trained detective is on the case,
"I think I may need a new name?
"Junior Trained Detective,
"No that's not right does ring true?
"Buddy The Trained Detective.
"That's the nickname you gave me mummy,
"That's excellent little man, I love your choice,
His mummy smiles and gives him a hug and
Kisses his forehead, they search under his pillow
"Nope? Mmmm... may have to get out the cap
And magnifying glass -o
"Mummy this is too small for me?
"Don't worry little man I thought this day may come,
Out of a box she pulls his new hat out, he tries it
On, perfectly it fits on his head and his detective
Days have started again. Fist my bedroom under
The pillow I will seek my tooth be it here or there.
But pillow case removed quilt removed o' so slowly
For a tooth we don't want to lose it, but nothing appeared.
"One place now searched with a keen eye,
"Now so many other places for it to hide,
He thought of where a tooth would place hide and
Seek from its home in the mouth, under the
Bed he thought.Torch in hand he wiggled under
The wooden from and what we he see but his
Car that vanished quite a while ago, I wondered
Where that went? a sweet, a pen, a coin for the piggybank.
"Mummy its not under or over the bed,
"I looked hard, but no where can it be found,
Little man was frustrated at the thought that the
Tooth fairy would not be rewarded with a tooth.
Right let me think? he thought of that night, it
Was their in bed, when story time was read.
It was their when mummy give him a kiss goodnight.
In the morning it was gone
"Trix where are you,
This is no time for hide and seek,
He found him tucked in his quilt, sleeping soundly.
"There you are sorry to wake you,
He looked in his hair "Nope not there,
Looked in his tail it was white and fluffy
"Nope not there,
He thought once again? if he were
Captain Carrot where would he keep his
Best friends tooth safe if it feel out in dreamy sleep.
A smile etched across Buddies face at the thought of
Where he would keep it safe for him.
In his little fingers did search around, and then
A little white rock, no a tooth was found.
Captain Trix had kept it safe in his uniform pocket.
"The case Is solved I found my tooth,
"Detective work solves a puzzling case again,
"Where was it my little man?
"Captain Carrot had it snuggly warm in his space rucksack,
"Now where does a tooth now found go,
She smiles rubbing his hair, off to his bedroom
He runs tooth proudly in hand.
Lifting his pillow he gently places it with pride
In the place where the tooth fairy could easily
Reach and find. Leaving a special present for this
Little boy who had found his missing toothy peg.
"I think I may keep this cap,
"Let Buddy the trained detective solve cases again soon,
