My Mum is an Alien

by COLLETTE SAW

I THINK MY MUM IS AN ALIEN,
NO REALLY , HONESTLY, IT’S TRUE,
SHE SAYS SHE HAS EYES IN THE BACK OF HER HEAD,
WELL THAT’S A FLIPPIN’ BIG CLUE.

SHE MAY BE TELE PATHETIC AS WELL,
'COS SHE ALWAYS KNOWS WHEN WE LIE,
AND SOMETIMES WHEN SHE’S IN A TERRIBLE RUSH,
SHE SAYS THAT ‘ SHE’LL JUST HAVE TO FLY’.

I THINK SHE PROBABLY HAS SUPER POWERS
WITH X-RAY VISION TOO,
SHE SAYS SHE DOES THE WORK OF TEN MEN EACH DAY,
AND TELLS DAD, ‘ I CAN SEE RIGHT THRU’ YOU’ .

I THINK HER WEAKNESS IS DIRT AND GERMS,
SHE’S ALWAYS CLEANING UP AFTER US,
AND SHE MAKES US WEAR CLEAN UNDIES EVERYDAY,
‘JUST IN CASE’ WE MIGHT GET.. ‘ HIT BY A BUS’

AND WHEN SHE TUCKS US UP IN BED AT NIGHT,
SHE USES HER POWERS OF HYPNOSIS,
TO MAKE US FEEL LIKE TIRED LITTLE SLEEPYHEADS,
I THINK MY MUM IS THE MOSTEST.
