Terrible Two’s!

In response to secretkeeper.net’s prompt # 151, to use the following 5 words in a poem or fiction.

Tame|Tot|Peak|Rest|Tale

A nonet in response to the above.

(Nonet (9 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1) progression downward of syllables)

 A tale of many a harried mom

trying in vain to tame her tot

terrible twos, at its peak

temper tantrums cry foul

raging frustrations

yearning for some

me time, to

 rest in

 peace.

I am sure many moms can relate to this one 🙂

    Yes, I can say but I must say my kid didn’t give me a hard time while growing up.

    It always surprises me that you can use certain words in a short verse as this, and yet write so wonderfully.
