I Lost My Shit Today-A Poem

I lost my shit today,

Not unlike any other day,

But different from yesterday,

Because yesterday we had fun.

 

Today when I awoke,

It seemed like a cruel joke,

They were already screaming,

“Mommy she is teasing!”

And as you can imagine this was not very pleasing.

 

I’m ashamed of what I have done,

My yelling spared LITERALLY no one,

Seriously, ask the dog,

I am sure I squealed like a hog.

 

When lunch came around,

I thought things had settled down,

But I was definitely wrong.

“I don’t like this! I don’t like that!”

Here kids, eat an old shoe, eat this old hat!

And nap was only an hour long.

 

By dinner I was on the phone,

My husband was nearly, just barely, almost home,

And every other sentence was a

“No!” Or a “Stop Please!”

“Don’t hit your sister!”

“Don’t tease her mister!”

“Don’t kick your poor brothers knees.”

 

Dear Lord what have I done,

I haven’t cooked for anyone,

Husband hurry home, if you love me

But at this point I just can’t guarantee,

that I won’t be crying when you walk in on wee.  (Not we as in us, but wee as in your daughter literally just peed on the floor, this isn’t part of the poem, just wanted to clarify, nothing to see here, move along.)

 

I lost my shit today,

Not unlike any other day,

But different from yesterday,

Because yesterday we had fun.
