In response to one-word prompt : Lurch
My baby sitter left me in the lurch,
She didn’t give me time to search.
Good sitters are not easy to find,
I thought I would lose my mind.
Suddenly I was lost in a trance,
I was thinking what if by chance.
My mom would come and stay with me,
And say, ‘Dear Ranu I think I can see.’
You need me, I’m delighted I can spare,
A few days with you and the kids so dear.’
Some one shook me I opened my eyes,
Saw a pretty woman, I tell no lies.
Said she, ‘I was walking this way,
Someone stopped me on this day.’
‘Please help my Ranu, be her sitter,
It’ll help her and you’ll feel better!’
