‘Phoning Susan- A poem by Jean Hill

Jean PicJean Hill from the Wokingham Library Poetry Group has written a poem to make you smile:

‘PHONING SUSAN

 We ignored all the arguments

Told her not to make a fuss

We decided that the time had come

To have Mother live with us

 

We’ll manage all her finance

And as legal legatee

Make sure that our inheritance

Wings its way to me

 

So we turned around the box-room

Signed her up for Medicare

Bought a bed-spread made of candlewick

And an orthopaedic chair

 

She’ll sit by the radiator

In a quilted dressing-gown

We’ll keep Velcro slippers by the fire

For if we have to ask her down

 

You’d think she’d be quite grateful

Appreciate our sacrifice

But she threw her dinner at me

Followed by her prunes and rice

 

I’m at the end of my tether

I don’t know what to do

We need a family conference

So I’ll ring my sister, Sue

 

“What shall we do about Mother

Her mind’s flipped, her virtue gone

She went to that Ann Summers shop

And bought herself a thong

 

She’s found herself a toy-boy

They’re dancing in her room

Can you hear the music down the ’phone

My head’s vibrating with the boom

 

I don’t like the bloke she’s taken with

He’s got ear-rings – quite uncouth

She’s like a teenager re-cycled

And he’s revived his mis-spent youth

 

They’re upsetting all the neighbours

As last night at half-past two

They staggered up the driveway

I could tell they’d had a few

 

She’s bought eyelash extensions

Grown a fringe and had it lightened

Now she’s ringing up the dentist

To have her false teeth whitened

 

They’re going off on holiday

No, not Eastbourne by the sea

If they just planned to sit in shelters

I’d be more likely to agree

 

No, they’ve booked a Caribbean cruise

It’s caused a lot of trouble

Not for them two single cabins

They’ve gone and booked a double

 

The situation’s getting urgent

We must prove her mind’s unsound

She’s spending all her money

So I got the doctor round

 

She’s taken back her pension book

And they’re making out new wills

Now she’s poured gin into her cocoa

And won’t take her sleeping pills

 

I felt medical opinion

Would provide a bit of hope

That’s before she told the doctor

Where to stuff his stethoscope

 

I thought I’d better ring you

To get this off my chest

Now you won’t believe this, Sue

She’s chucked out her thermal vest

 

She’s bought herself some ‘leathers’

Doesn’t care that she’s a sight

In a fluorescent helmet

She’s riding pillion on his bike

 

Last night they went out clubbing

Disco-danced ’till after one

And, Sue, it isn’t seemly

For old folk to have such fun

 

I’d like to have her grounded

Turn the key and lock her in

She said she’d contact Age Concern

And found the number where to ring

 

She’s had her toe-nails polished

Now she’s gone beyond the pale

She’s the only old aged pensioner

With a blue-rinsed pony-tail

 

And she’s gone vegetarian

She’s out there hugging trees

And he’s into Morris Dancing

With bells tied round his knees

 

Yes, I might be menopausal

And hysteria is looming

But Sue – this is our mother

That this gigolo is grooming

 

But now this is the last straw

The one that broke the camel’s back

She’s got herself a tattoo

And I’m sure they’re snorting ‘smack’

 

Mother’s gone quite loopy

Don’t know what Dad would have said

Can you hear that thump and twanging

It’s the bed-springs on her bed

 

I’m going to barge right in there

I’m going to shout and rave

This house will know no peace again

Until she’s in her grave

 

Now I’ve got to ’phone the vicar

Get him here quick as he can

Mother’s just informed me

She’s ripped up her funeral plan

 

Sue, Susan, are you listening

Can you have Mother there

She’s driving me quite mental

And I’m tearing out my hair

 

I can’t cope any longer

My nervous breakdown’s overdue

I’m evicting Mother and her lover

They can come and live with you

 

Now Sue please don’t be horrid

To say I’ve feathered my own nest

You know I care for Mother

And acted for the best

 

I can’t believe you find this funny …..”

What’s that buzz – the dialling tone

My heartless sister Susan

Has hung up the flaming ’phone

 

By Jean Hill
