The calming sounds of silence,
A cup of well-brewed chai,
Is all a mother needs sometimes
To cool her weary eye.

The kid was with his train set,
The toddler by his side;
I sipped the dark darjeeling blend
And felt it's soothing tide.

(ring ring) I glanced toward the boys,

(ring ring) Still having fun.

(ring ring) I took another sip,

(ring ring) It had begun.


"Hello"
                                        "Hey"

"Hey, how's it going?"

NO. GIVE IT BACK! NOW!

NOOOOOOOOO!

"Hang on.."
                                        "Sure"

QUIET YOU GUYS. I'M ON THE PHONE!

LUKEY TOOK MY POLICEMAN. GIVE IT BACK! LUKEY, GIVE IT BACK! AAAAAARGGHH!

STOP SCREAMING IBBY.

"Sorry about that."
                                        "That's okay. Driving you nuts, huh?"

WAAAAAAAH! IBBY HOIT ME. IBBY HOIT ME.

HE DESERVED IT!

"How are things?"

WAAAAAAAAH! IBBY HOIT ME. WAN POLICEMAN.

IT'S MINE!

BE NICE, IBBY.

WAAAAAAH!
                                        "Alright, was just checking in."
I HATE IBBY!

"Oh. Yeah. All good here. You know..."

I HATE YOU EVEN MORE

                                        "Yeh. See you tonight."

WAN POLICEMAN. WAAAAAAH!

"Okay. Bye.”

FINE!
                                        "I love you."

SIT DOWN. HERE. NO MORE STEALING OKAY?

"Love you too."

OKAY IBBY (SNIFFLE!)

I quietly replaced the phone,
And turned to face the boys,
The silence had returned by now
And they had to their toys.

The kid was with his train set,
The toddler by his side;
And I, with my darjeeling blend,
Accustomed to this ride.

The calming sounds of silence,
A cup of well-brewed chai,
Is all a mother needs sometimes
To cool her weary eye.
