I’m Daddy’s Little Princess

I spilled my orange juice this morning
Before I went to school—
It was my mother’s final warning;
I broke her golden rule.

In class I found an orange crayon,
I used it on the wall…
My teacher—she really carried on;
She didn’t like my scrawl.

This new boy in school’s got orange hair,
His name is Peter Kirk…
He scribbled a rude word on my chair;
He really is a jerk.

At lunch I took his orange teddy…
I got blamed for that smut!
When he turned to tell Miss LaReddy,
I kicked him in the butt.

I hid in the orange toilet block,
Ripped the ears off his bear,
And stayed in there ‘til two o’clock—
Call my mom—I don’t care.

At three I rode the orange school bus
And thought about my day—
The principal made an awful fuss,
I think I’ll runaway.

There’s my mom holding that orange stick;
She’s waiting at the gate…
I should think up something really quick
Or take my daily fate.

But Mom, it was the orange monster,
It’s all I could recall—
I’m Daddy’s little princess, Esther,
And he won’t mind at all.


Note: No teddy bears, orange monsters or naughty children were really hurt in this tale.

I really enjoyed the poetic tale. Fun read. Well done.

Very cute! I tripped a little over the meter in places, but I feel like it added to the realism of the MCs voice.
Very fun!

Your disclaimer at the end really made me grin!

Authenic voice for this little orange monster/princess.

Funny, funny, funny. A little girl Dennis the Menace! Totally creative.

I like the footnote!

The voice of your MC reminded me a little bit of "Eloise" from the children's books and movie. A good example of the topic and fun to read. Loved your disclaimer :-)

I know some little princesses like this. Adorable, Chrissy! Nice job.

This gave me a big smile... I especially love the "Daddy's Little Princess" line (that allows her to escape punishment.) :)

Very cute poem. I was grinning all the way through it!

What a rotten child you are.. :-P

A good play on word use though.
