Big Sister

Big Sister: Is she cool? Poetry

How lovely to be a big sister, right?
To have that adorable, cute little thumb sucking munchkin following you around the house.
Her obedient little eyes, searches everything that I do and the rude mouth which calms down after a good scolding.
How sweet to hear her reciting her ABCs and the 1-10 numbers.
Time flies and the rude mouth become permanently etch on her teenage mouth.
There was no ‘terrible two stage’ but the terrible twelve just slam dunked in my court.
I try to understand because I was a teenager and I experience all those bizarre changes but this is taking it a bit too far. No?
The sucking of teeth for the most ridiculous reason, I always tell her “brush it, don’t suck it,” but no she drops these irritating bombs everywhere and anywhere.
Then comes the ‘boys’ phrase’, I have no problem with her getting crazy for them but she refuses to put some Maths and English in her hard-headed brain.
What is the point of school, if one makes the little effort to learn? Am I Right?
Clothes, shoes and hair take the prime spot and everything else means little or nothing at all.
So much for the loveliness of a big sister when the little sister seems feather brain and all TV’d up.

Mom shouts: “Ecclesiastes 12:1: Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, whilst the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say; I have no pleasure in them.”

Arianne says angrily “Oh great, go ahead make me feel guilty about my life. It is my life and I should do whatever I want with it. Hello! It is the 21st century, hooray to freedom.”

 

Dad says “Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise).”

 

Arianne frustratingly answers “Did you forget verse 4… And ye, fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. 

I can never speak to you because you always act so self-righteous. Greg always listens to me;   I rather spend time over at his place than here.”
