Mischievous Little Me

Mischievous Little Me short poem

When I was just a kid
Funny little things I did
Things told to forbid
You may call it misdeed

One sunny day I so played
Buried in the dust I strayed
Homework postponed, I delayed
Dad won’t be back I weighed

Suddenly I spotted dad in the driveway
I fled and sped through the doorway
Covered in dust I went for a lotion spray
Hoping on dad’s intelligence to outplay

Dad called out but I feigned siesta
Walked in, saw my legs designed like a zebra
With dust and lotion in a confused umbra
He laughed heartily as I lay on the sofa

Little lady only 13. Never pretty enough but smart as can be. No friends just books. Mom overworked so no dinner just lonely. She was bullied for years: isolated in insecurity, abandonment, and unhappiness until she was 17. Senior year
