Savvy Poem – This is Important


Go away!

Shut up!

It’s not going to make me any faster, if you keep shouting

at me…

… if you keep telling me to get ready!

It’s not going to make me any faster, if you tell me to brush my teeth,

or find my PE kit.

I’ve still got to get ready, still got to get dressed, still can’t go any faster than I

can go

in a minute ..

when I’ve done this …

… this is important …


Stop going on at me!

I’ve just got to finish this …

it’s just three more minutes until

the end

of this video clip ..

just three more minutes …


This is important!


It’s nearly finished ..

Where’s my PE top?

Now, I’m going to be late and

it’s your fault!

Where are my PE shorts?

I can’t find …

my trainers and

it’s not my fault …

If anything’s making me late, it’s

you …

I was getting dressed

so it’s not my fault ..

I had to keep stopping for you to keep telling me …

so it’s hardly my …

Where’s my deodorant?

What did you do with it?

Where’s my blazer …?

Who’s packed lunch is this?

I don’t know where my blazer is ..

What? What?

Explain to me how it’s my fault I’m late?


You can’t, can you?


That’s why you’re not saying anything isn’t it?

Because you can’t explain …

Because it’s not my fault …

And it’s not all down to a Youtube clip ….

You can’t blame everything on a YouTube clip …

Come on, explain!


You can’t, can you?

Freelance writer and descendant of the cave dweller and outlaw, Humphrey Kynaston. Banished from Shropshire for my eccentricity, I have made my home in Suffolk. I write poetry, short stories, travel journals, comedy gig reviews and non-fiction articles. My wish is to write my way back into the heart of my birth land. All writing commissions (and free holidays in Shropshire!) considered.
