Books are the bane of my life

Books are the bane of my life

Books don't let me sleep

Books dont let me play

I burn the food, I allow the milk to overflow

I don't want to talk to my husband

or the kids

or the neighbours

I don't want to walk

or run or exercise

I don't make my bed

I don't sleep

I am late for work

I dont pick up calls

I don't want to cuddle

I don't care if you've eaten or not

or if you want something to drink.

Books are why my son ignores me

and my husband too

They tell me go away & not appear

till they have finished their reading

They don't want to chat

or go out & play

or tell me what they did all day

Books make me aware

Books make me wonder

Books make me think, think thoughts sometimes I'd much rather not think

Books make me yearn to have more, more & some more

When I don't have books

I read brochures

I read menus

I read recipes

Why, I even found myself reading the fineprint

Tell me again why books are good for you?

Books are the bane of my life.

At Least is books and not electronics like in my house,
I know is not nice to be ignore at all, but at least it looks that they ate learning something. The book will eventually finish, Internet never end and my husband wants the desire to know about everything. Fabian is just learning to like books lately.
