An ode to fireworks

An ode to fireworks (now I’m a mum)
Oh fireworks so noisy and bright.
You really do make bedtime a fright.
Pretty colours and sounds so fun.
Unless that is, you are a mum.
Banging till 2AM
That used to be me.
Instead you make me so angry.
Whizzing and popping, things that burn
Making my child toss and turn
So shove your sparklers up your bum
From an over tired, disgruntled mum.
