Lisa's Lament

Oh Mum I’ve just met this boy
Oh Mum he’s just such a joy
No lush is what he is
He really is the bizz
Mum he really is mint
But mum I’m so skint
I don’t have the means
To buy those wicked new jeans
And mum it would be just great
To buy a new top for my date
And if you do this for me
I promise I will make the tea
We are going into town
Can you please drive me down?
And for the taxi fare home
Can I please have a loan?
And do you think you would mind
If I wore your trainers ...
mum you’re so kind
Mine are mingin’ you see
And you have similar taste to me
Oh mum I just can’t wait
It’s going to be a brilliant date

By Julie M Wilson (alias Mum)
