Poetry by Jeff Green


Just doing her job

Our new baby sitter does not understand
The job she is doing at all
She’s sat on the baby, my brother and me
While Dad’s taken Mum to the ball

And while they’re out dancing the evening away
We children are starting to moan
While sitting upon us she fidgits you see
And weighs nearly seventeen stone!!!

Author notes

For any Americans who chance to read this, a stone is 14 pounds, and 17 stone is a BIG girl
