Challenge 22 was to write a children’s poem. When I was a kid, my mom’s method to wake me up each morning would be to entice me with something yummy for breakfast. That memory was the inspiration for this poem.
Wakey, wakey it’s time for brekky
Wipe the sleep away from your dopey eyes
And come downstairs for a surprise
Chocolate chip pancakes with whipped cream
Cinnamon buns, stuff of your daydreams
Or buttermilk waffles with lashings of sticky maple syrup
Maybe a slice of toasted banana bread with a nutella spread instead?
Wakey wakey my lil princess please get up and off your bed!
