Don't Get Me Started


When people chew their food too loud

When you look outside and see the clouds

When people fuss and fight in crowds —

Don’t even get me started.


When biscuits fall in cups of tea

When mum goes on a cleaning spree

Whenever teachers pick on me —

Don’t even get me started.


Waiting in an airport queue

When chocolate melts and turns to goo

No toilet paper in the loo —

Don’t even get me started.


Wi-Fi signals that get lost

Summer sun that turns to frost

Poems with irregular rhyme schemes —

Don’t even get me started!
