Teenage Tantrum

by Hollie aged 11

My mum told me to get off my phones,
She said I needed to get out and stretch my bones.
‘What do you mean mum, I’ve only just gone on it?!’
First of all the candle needs to be lit!

I started to sigh and turned on my back,
I wish I could give her a big, loud whack!
I jumped up and started to scream and shout,
So she just looked at me and I knew I should have doubts.

“Get off your phone, lazy bum!”
No please, please, please can I have it back mum?
My mum took the phone out of my hands,
And threw it on the floor, I hope it lands!
