While Shepherds Watched – the Teens’ Parents version

December 18, 2013

While children watched the box by night,
All seated on the ground;
The mother of them all came down,
And fury shone around,
And fury shone around.

“Dear God!” said she, for mighty dread
Had seized her troubled mind.
“Do none of you have any sense
This mess I always find
This mess I always find”

“To you, just staring without thought
Plonked seated and just fine
And crisps and Coke cans everywhere
And this shall be the sign,
And this shall be the sign:”

“This time it has now gone too far
You’ve pushed your luck once more,
I’m not clearing up this mess -get it
Cleaned by the count of four
Cleaned by the count of four

Thus spake the Mother and forthwith
Appeared a shining throng
Teenagers praising Dad on high,
Who said they’d done nothing wrong
Who said they’d done nothing wrong

“Fuck that” said she with screaming voice
Head swollen now and rounded
You clear this up right now or else
You’ll be forever grounded
You’ll be forever grounded

And so it was with much poor grace
They did get up off their bums
And the moral of the story is
Don’t play Dads off against Mums
Don’t play Dads off against Mums
