A Poem to my Parents

17 years

In November

Took too long

To remember

Two teen kids

Four shared pets

Two mother-in-laws

They try not to text

They love books,

Board games,

Word search,

And each other

Our dog,

Our cat,

Two guinea pigs

And my brother

But they also love me

And isn’t that nice

To roll a 20

With the ol’ parent dice

They still go on dates

(Most when we’re not around)

And talk with their mates

About weird things they’ve found

Like my dad’s a strict carnivore

And has weird ideas

My mum’s into plants more

And ends movies in tears

But Mum eats Dad’s salad

And he makes her laugh

So I guess that’s why they love each other

Infinity and a half
