I’ll Be Ready in Five Minutes

 

By Elton Camp

 

“Lucy Belle, won’t you come on, dear.

We are going to be late again, I fear.”

 

Poor Ronald made this plaintive cry

In hope that to speed up she would try

 

Although it was nearly time to go

Lucy Belle hadn’t got dressed, though

 

She bellowed out with an angry shout

“Just leave me alone, you sorry lout.”

 

“In five minutes I’ll be in the car.

Just be sure that’s where you are!”

 

Ronald paced the hall up and down

Looked at his watch with a frown

 

Twenty minutes had already passed,

To say it would bring an angry blast

 

So Ronald gave a resigned sigh

Maybe they’d get there by and by
