POOF!

Or should I say Puff??? Poof! The Super Woman vanished from the net
And frolicked in the summer sun, watching her children get wet,
“Vacationing” Super Woman became her kids’ chauffeur,
Driving to swimming, camps and parks and other places I’m sure…

Together they would travel on planes and loaded cars
Guzzling gas and loads of cash, ‘stead of filling jamming jars,
Super Woman wondered if she’d e’re get time alone,
“Just a few more weeks ’til summer’s o’re”, people heard her moan.

For Flash’s six birthday, he wanted a dragon theme
So two days aft a long trip, a party was prepped by the team,
One hot night it happened, Super Woman began to bake,
And Poof ! that mighty dragon, became a homemade cake!

Then heads bent in exhaustion, green sweat fell like rain,
The Super team learned to allow more time, or else they’d go insane.
As for birthday gifts, only homemade was allowed,
With less “stuff” in the house, Super Woman could be proud. Oh!

Poof! The Super Woman vanished from the net
And frolicked in the summer sun, watching her children get wet,
“Vacationing” Super Woman became her kids’ chauffeur,
Driving to swimming, camps and parks and other places I’m sure…

I painted this 3 foot tall dragon for “pin the flame on the dragon”.
