Mother vs Chav – A Poem (100WCGU) (National Poetry Day)

Mother vs Chav


The baby’s crying –

third time tonight.

Inconsolable wailing –

nothing I do is right.


It was that idiot that did it –

I’d swear and call him names

but none are rude enough to fit. –

Yes, that pillock is to blame.


Roaring past the flat

at sixty miles an hour.

(Did I mention he’s a prat?)

Waking my precious flower.


She’s sleeping sweetly now,

I calmed her with a drink.

The stress is easing from my brow –

I’ll go to bed, I think.




A dirty nappy was beside her bed,

suddenly it was in my hand –

then launching at his head,

Bet that wasn’t what he planned…
