I Did Exactly What You Told Me To – A Poem

By Gloson On October 17, 2009 Tags:

My mom went to the shopping mall
to buy a brand new bed.
Before she went, she told me something.
This is what she said:

“Wash the clothes!
Fry potatoes!
Finish homework!
Boil tomatoes!

“Wash your face!
Dust the doors!
Comb your hair!
Clear the drawers!

“Wipe the windows!
Chop the wood!
Mow the grass!
Eat your food!

“Rake the leaves!
Fold the clothes!
Feed our doggies!
Shoo the crows!

“Brew the Chinese
herbal tea.
Then you’re free to
watch TV!

“Please do exactly what I’ve said.
Please do what you have heard!”
My mother then went to the mall.
I did her every word.

Fried the clothes,
washed potatoes.
Boiled homework,
finished tomatoes.

Dusted my face,
washed the doors.
Cleared my hair,
combed the drawers.

Chopped the windows,
wiped the wood.
Ate the grass,
mowed my food.

Folded leaves,
raked the clothes.
Shooed our doggies,
fed the crows.

Watched the Chinese
herbal tea.
Then I brewed our
huge TV.

Finally, I’ve done the chores!
I then relaxed with glee.
I can’t wait for her to come home.
She’ll be so proud of me.

    Okay Gloson, you got me laughing my ass off.

    Your brain is awesome.

    Nice poem and I think we can work out poems for kids too. I’m an upcoming poet. What do you say about that?
