Holiday End Blues.

You drive me mad with endless need,
Another drink, another feed,
Another game, a naughty deed,
But I’ll miss you when you’re back at school.
The cupboards are completely bare,
Like locusts have been eating there,
I filled them yesterday I swear,
But I’ll miss you when you’re back at school.
I am absolutely skint,
These days out seem to cost a mint,
Now all that’s in my purse is lint,
But I’ll miss you when you’re back at school.
I need a rest, I’m all done in,
And I’m almost out of gin,
I can’t keep up, I’m a has-been,
But I’ll miss you when you’re back at school.
Hanging out with you is fun,
Even when there’s not much sun,
I’m sad the holidays are done,
I’ll miss you when you’re back at school.

    Lovely AND funny! A win-win. I feel just the same. Except perhaps at this EXACT minute when they are all shouting and screaming at each other.
