Mother said be home by 5
by Kyle Glazener

I'm 39 years old and I still remember this poem my 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Harrison, taught me at Riverside Elementary in Austell, GA.

Goodness, gracious, sakes alive
Mother said be home by 5
Now the clock is striking 6
Oh am I in a norful fix
She will say I can't be trusted
She will say that she's disgusted
