Halloween Sitting

I walked out into the night, Frightened by the moonlit sky I broached the neighbor’s lawn with care I heard the babies cry inside Quickly up the drive I ran Knowing they needed a helping hand The door swung open before I knocked Swiftly they shooed me in My sitting job was to begin Dirty diapers all around Babies making baby sounds The sent of poop filled the room Dirty diapers would be my doom The lights started flickering The mothers waved goodbye I panic as I scanned the room Babies here babies there Too many to count too many to care Diapers diapers filling up As I began to change One diaper then another I scream for their mothers Help help I cant take no more Dirty diapers covered the floor A chill ran down my spine As the echo’s of children filled the streets House to house in search of treats I plugged my nose and clamped my ears More rug rats are what I fear! In the crib you all shall go Take your bottles and off to sleep Lock the doors and dim the lights Mommies will soon be home I shiver as I text a friend Waiting for this night end Babysitting what a chore Spooky night that’s for sure I hear a car approach the drive Oh, thank heaven the mommies have arrived In they came and out they went Thanking me again and again!
