Life with a Teenager
Teenagers Rock!

It boils and bubbles with gastric troubles
Inedible garbage passed through his gullet
With pungent fumes that linger in wake
Make no mistake I felt the earth shake
Teenagers Rock!

Sounds of running water heard from the hall
All signs pointing to privy’s overflow
Acres of paper thrust down its throat
Pee-trap unable to ingest the debris
Teenagers Rock!

I plunge and I plunge, to no avail
Plumber summoned to mend my commode
He snakes and drains, tossing me the bill
His knowing wink means he owns one too
Teenagers Rock!

As I exit the room, I trip over a shoe
Crash into the wall my shoulder jacked
I fall to the floor in pain and woe
Smiling at me, a foot fungised Nike
Teenagers Rock!

He’s out the door with a grumbling farewell
Cursing curfew and the rules we’ve made
Grumpy and snide such remarks he makes
As he asks for the car keys and a tank of gas
Teenagers Rock!

Once back at home the fridge he raids
No chip untouched, every taco shell crunched
He boils and bubbles with gastric troubles
Lord, help me please, our cycle repeats
Teenagers Rock!

He climbs into bed, sleeps like he’s dead
His adenoids gurgle a deafening snore
Thoughts of grizzlies and ogres fill my head
Slumber undisturbed, he’s home safe and sound
Teenagers Rock!
