Simon Armitage Poem

In the interests of Gender Equality I found the following:

She drove her boy to football and to scouts

And ironed all his clothes that she’d put out

And once, for disobedience, told his mate

About his toilet problem, when aged eight.

She didn’t party after work at all

Her man had charge of the remote control

And once when he came late home from the pub

She served him warmed-up dog food as his grub.

And for her Dad, she let him smoke indoors

On Fridays cleaned his loo and washed his floors

And when he asked to be her lodger, she

Said, “Tough, you cannot ever stay with me.”

Here’s how they rated her when they looked back

Sometimes she did this, sometimes she did that.
