IF I SHOULD GET IN MY SISTER'S ROOM

by TADIWA SHIRI
(ZIMBABWE)

OH IS THIS MY LUCKY DAY
MY SISTER HAS JUST LEFT FOR UNIVERSITY
BUT WAIT; FOR THAT IS NOT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING OF WHICH TO BOAST
I CAN'T ,I JUST CAN'T SURELY I'M TEMPTED VERY MUCH
BUT WHAT IF ,I MEAN WHAT IF I GET LOST
SO FAR AS I'VE HEARD FROM OTHER GIRLS FROM SCHOOL, THEY ALWAYS TELL ME THEY NEVER GOT THEIR BIRTHDAY WISHES EVER AGAIN

I REALLY WANT A BIRTHDAY WISH BUT I CAN'T BE TEMPTED
IT'S EVER SHOWOFF AT OUR SCHOOL ABOUT THIS AND THAT SO I NEED SOMETHING TO TELL THEM ABOUT

OH DEAR THIS TEMPTATION WILL NEVER LEAVE ME
OH WHAT HAVE I DONE
HOW DID I END UP WITH HER SPARE KEYS
OH WHAT HAVE I DONE
OH MOM MAY I PLEASE BE EXCUSED FROM DINNER WHY YOU CAN BUT YOU WILL WAKE UP WITH HUNGER ONE DAY MARK MY WORDS FOR I TELL YOU THE TRUTH
BUT MOM, IT'S JUST ME WANTING TO EXPERIMENT SO MAY I PLEASE;PLEASE ;I BEG ;I BEG
OKAY DON'T SAY I DIDN'T WARN YOU
I ENTER THE ROOM OF DOOOM ,AND WHAT DO I FIND
OH NO I CAN'T
I RUN DOWN THE STAIRS AND INSTEAD OF MEETING MOM HALFWAY I MEET MY SISTER HER FACE SO RED LIKE THER IS NO TOMORROW
