Call me...?


Call me—crying
Call me—skipping
Call me—jumping
Call me—juggling
Call me—laughing
Call me—shouting

Call me—for cuts
Call me—for grazes
Call me—for bruises
Call me—for my hugs
Call me—for my kisses
Call me—for ironing
Call me—for school money

Call me—lying?
Call me—crazy?
Call me—for a sickly tummy
Call me—lazy?
Call me—stupid?
Call me—a dummy?
Call me—call me—call me…

"But don't call me—Mum! "...
…Go away from me—son!
Speak with your dad, and have some fun…?
