When I'm An Old Lady


This is a funny poem shared by my cousin, Harry Serres.  Enjoy... and consider (ha!).  Peggy.


When  I'm an old lady, I'll live with each kid,
And bring so much  happiness.. just as they did.
I want to pay back all the joy they've  provided.
Returning each deed! Oh, they'll be so excited!
(When I'm an  old lady and live with my kids)

I'll write on the wall with reds, whites and blues,
And I'll bounce on the furniture.. wearing my shoes. 
I'll drink from the carton and then leave it out.
I'll stuff all the  toilets and oh, how they'll shout!
(When I'm an old lady and live with my  kids)

When they're on the phone and just out of reach,
I'll get  into things like sugar and bleach.
Oh, they'll snap their fingers and then  shake their head,
(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids) 

When they cook dinner and call me to eat,
I'll not eat my green  beans or salad or meat,
I'll gag on my okra, spill milk on the table, 
And when they get angry...I'll run...if I'm able!
(When I'm an old  lady and live with my kids)

I'll sit close to the TV, through the  channels I'll click,
I'll cross both eyes just to see if they stick. 
I'll take off my socks and throw one away,
And play in the mud 'til  the end of the day!
(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids) 

And later in bed, I'll lay back and sigh,
I'll thank God in prayer  and then close my eyes.
My kids will look down with a smile slowly  creeping,
And say with a groan, 'She's so sweet when she's  sleeping!'

God Bless All Moms and Grandmas Everywhere!
