4:30, bastion of terror

three children shouting
demanding dinner and snacks
yet they won't eat food

time to torture Ike
time to whine and scream and kick
time for tequila

please go play outside
and then they turn on the hose
with back door open

sand in diaper
all of the shoes are missing
someone stole my keys

where is my robot
to cook dinner and be nice
I'm going to hide

talk about homework
lots of homework talk talk talk

dog is barking now
there is never any peace
watch my head explode
