Twas The Night Before Homestudy

Some comic relief for you tonight:
Twas the night before home study
and all through the house.
Every creature is whirring, even a mouse.
The laundry was thrown about without care
even knowing a social worker soon would be there.
The children were spazzed bouncing on their beds
while visions of a new sibling danced in their heads
With mama in her headband and dad in his cap
had just geared up for a long nights'
When out in the kitchen, it arose such a clatter
Daddy sprang from the couch to see what was the matter
Away to the compactor, he flew like a flash
tore open the door and threw out the trash
The two day old mess at the bottom of the can
gave a putrid smell to the entire Andrews clan
When what to our watering eyes should appear
but a collection of garbage that should incite fear.
With a gag and a hurl that came fast and so quick
We knew in a moment it might make us sick.
More rapid than eagles his commands they came
and he whistled and shouted and called them by name
"Come Angel Come Dino bring cleaner and spray"
"bring comet bring clorox, let's get the smell out the way"
To the top of the can to the bottom of the bag
now dash away dash away, we scrubbed with a rag
So out of the house top the kiddos they flew
with the bag full of trash and the nasty smell too.
I heard them explain as they went out the front door
"No smelly trash in the house no more."

I remember that for days before our first home study, I stayed up late cleaning and organizing and trying to think about possible questions. By the time we got to our last home study (at that point, it was our seventh), we didn't even bother to tidy!

I enjoyed your poem and really hope that your home study went well. How exciting!
