What a Week by Lynn Viera

On Sunday I complained to Mom
that I was feeling lazy
I said it without thinking but she went completely crazy

Monday I was taught to dance and bake a cake and sew my pants
Tuesday I was told to jog and learn the drums and walk the dog
Wednesday I was made to swim and fix the car and join a gym
Thursday I was forced to cook and get a job and write a book

By Friday I felt quite unmoored.
I made a frantic bid
I pleaded that I needed some more time to be a kid!

My whining wore my mom out and
my free time was restored
and I have learned to never
ever
ever
say I’m bored!

About this Poem

In March of 2020 I made my debut in the Madness Poetry competition. My word was “unmoored”, and I lost in the first round to some incredible talent. It was an inspiring experience and I’m already warming up my rhyming muscle for next year.
