I need a wife! A poem by Toni Kent

I need a wife
Someone to organise my life

To sort out bills

Clean round the loo

Someone to do the shopping too ...

Someone who remembers when term ends

When homework's due

Someone who sends..

Completed forms and makes dates to play

Who never forgets an inset day

Someone to manage groups and clubs

Gymnastics, swimming, judo, cubs

Washing, drying, washing again

Darks and delicates, whites and then...

Someone who can quickly find

The one sock that got left behind

Someone to stem the tide of mess

Sew on badges, hem a dress

Hoover the house, get filing done

Speak to the bank

Make homework "fun"

The kids' shoes are missing

And chaos is rife

I just have to face it

I need a wife!
