OBSERVING LARGE FAMILIES

OBSERVING LARGE FAMILIES

My family is rather small,

Two parents–two brothers–that’s all…

Not much interaction

For outside inspection,

But her family’s having a ball!

Her party was a big crowd,

With everyone talking out loud…

Some got in more

While holding the floor

But nobody was there cowed!

Cousin Cathy brought Carvel,

An option that went around well…

Seconds were had

By several glad

That ice cream cake was a good sell.

Diana’s cheesecake too,

Diners tried to work through…

Unrefrigerated,

Soon mold-integrated,

It wasn’t worth keeping–boo hoo!

We sang Di. her birthday song,*

A day AFTER it belonged…

Parties short notice

Even with good motive

Take time for revelry long!

The next day, the other side

Of the family devised….

A luncheon good

At which Di. would

Be also pleasantly surprised.

–Jonathan Caswell

* Di.   is short for Diana.
