For the love of Pete!!!! Happy Birthday Shel Silverstein’s

My future tree house builder!
For the love of Pete
She stood with hands on hips.
Her mouth just opened
And out it came,
A mother’s plaintive cry
Why oh why
Did you….?
The shed was unsheathed
Gone simply gone.
Instead there was a house
In the tree on the lawn.
Why oh why
Did you….?
One board was all
They thought at the start.
They were just kids
Seeing only a small part.
The only saw
A small board in their hand.
Their tree house was beautiful
But Dad’s shed was
No where to be found!!!
In a funny sort of way
She couldn’t find the wrong.
For the love of Pete
Why oh why
Did you…..?
Smile.
