You incurred your father’s wrath again
For what you’ve done today.
And if you take my wise advice,
You’ll keep out of his way.
You’ve done the things he clearly said
Were things you shouldn’t do,
And you‘ve left the toilet dirty
And I had to flush your poo.
You kicked your football very high
And broke the greenhouse roof.
It’s no good you denying it
For Daddy’s got the proof.
Your father’s angry, with just cause,
For what you said to him.
You told him that you’d learnt at school
Wrath was a deadly sin.
I’ll tell you what’s a deadly sin –
It’s you and no mistake.
Ah! I didn’t mean to make you cry.
Come, let us share some cake.

WRATH: I enjoyed doing poems on 'the seven deadly sins' and wrath was one of those sins. Definition: Wrath is great anger that expresses itself in a desire to punish someone. Anger is manifested in the individual who spurns love and opts instead for fury. It is also known as wrath. So the boy did all the things which made his father angry, ie incurred his wrath. I wrote this poem when I was in a writing group and it was just a bit of fun, but yes, we all make others angry at some time, but forgiveness is what is really needed afterwards.
