Adam’s mummy – version 2

by Raj Arumugam

And Adam
said to God:
Daddy! Daddy!

What now?
sighed God,
quite irritated.

Daddy, daddy -
where's mummy?
asked Adam.

God thought
for a while
and He said:
O, I got rid of her.

But why, Daddy?
asked Adam

Oh, she was
too much of an inconvenience,
came the quick reply.

And as quickly
Adam said:
That mound, Daddy -
that mound
in the middle of the garden,
I've always suspected -
is that Mum, Daddy?
