TEENAGE BOY’S ROOM

Bedcovers crumpled, in a terrible state,
Lying on the carpet a dirty plate,
A smelly sock on the bed, another on the floor,
A jacket slung over the bedroom door,
A mug on the windowsill, a glass on the shelf,
I know it didn’t get there by itself.
Schoolbooks tossed on to the bedroom chair
With a scarf and a hat that shouldn’t be there,
A pile of dirty washing in a great big heap
Makes his Mum just want too weep.
Cables and cables and cables galore
Just when you thought you couldn’t get more,
Attached to computer, X-box, light,
TV and DVD - not hidden from sight.
A mobile and an MP3 vie for space
In a room where nothing is in the right place,
A shoe beneath the bed, the other by the wall,
It’s a wonder anything can be found at all.
Well, before his Mum throws an almighty fit
I think he’d better go and tidy it!
