Poem – Preserve the Peace

via Daily Prompt: Gingerly

Preserve the Peace


Hell has no fury like a toddler woken from a nap

So when your little one falls asleep in the car

You gingerly move her one inch at a time

Hold your breath if it will help

But don’t forget to watch your step

The tiniest of stumble could ruin all you are working for

Once you have made it through the threshold you are almost there

Hats, gloves, jackets, and boots can all stay

Now slowly, slowly lower her to the bed

If you are lucky enough to keep her asleep and walk away

Don’t forget to close the door gently

Because hell has no fury like a toddler who is woken from her nap
