The Isle of Disgruntled Toys


The toys are upset
and they're muttering a lot,
summer is here
and it's really quite hot.

Everyone else has
a lot of time off,
but when they want a break
these children just scoff.

They do work hard
and they do work cheap,
they mind the children
so the grown-ups can sleep.

But if they don't get a vacation
whatever the cost,
they're off on a strike
and the kids can get lost.


I'm taking a summer break.
I'll see you all soon!

  36. Haha! Oh, my friend, you are a delight! I've been "on strike" for months now and just popped in to say "hi". Just loved this poem and the charming toys that have had enough already! I shared it with Dennis and we both giggled. You bring so much joy to the world. And we so desperately need it! Never stop! I hope you're enjoying your vacation. Love you bunches! Nancy

  44. Your disgruntled toys look like they're in pretty good condition. My grandbaby would love to play with them. She's really into dolls and stuffed animals and even books now. It was so good to see you stop by, Amalia. Yes, the break was much needed, but it's good to be back among sweet friends, like you. : )
