How Stupid (Collaboration with CJ Maleney)

"Is My Dad?"

My dad is pretty stupid,
Stupider than me.
He doesn't even know algebra,
He doesnt get the A, B and C.

I have to teach him lots,
Like math and the keyboard,
He is so stupid he doesn't get
My taste of music at all !

Sometimes my music he likes,
Other times he hates!
But together we like lots of things
We will always be best mates.

Its alright to have a stupid dad,
Because he cares a lot about you.
Except when you need lots of help
Don't forget to ask mam too.

Dads don't know everything,
So just give them a break,
But if you start to wonder
Yes, the beer he will take.

Ask him a few things,
But not a lot you see.
For he can get mad you know
Pretty easily!

That's what I love about him
He's different to you and me,
But if you think for a little while,
Just how stupid he can be!


"Is My Daughter?"

Dani is my little girl,
She really is quite sweet,
But there are times when she is horrible!
when she screams and stamps her feet.

This doesn't happen all the time,
Yet it happens quite a bit.
If she does not get her own way
Then comes the hissy fit.

She really is quite smart you know!
But patience she does lack!
I could help with lots and lots of things,
She simply has to ask.

She'll come down stairs complaining,
"I've got no clothes no more"
I would have washed them for you dear,
Were they not strewn across your floor.

She thinks that I'm quite lame you know!
For don't like all her tunes.
I'll educate her in classic rock
But for now she can clean her room.

Despite all our little disputes,
And all those hissy fits,

One thing that's undeniable.

"We love each other to bits"

    judging comment:
    This double treat of family banter made me smile inside and out. It’s like a snapshot of a moment in time, that’s so familiar to so many of us. Each easily rhymed poem is expressed by both father and daughter in a warm, faux-disparaging tone, that just can’t conceal the obvious love and affection shared. Sweet and amusing in equal measures. :-) x

    Right, firstly let me just say I understand this poem entirely...from a dad's point of view! My daughter is 10 and I am beginning to feel inadequate in many of the ways listed here! I try and educate her in rock, I am force fed Katy Perry! Fashion? Don't get her started in Dad's taste in that!
    I suppose, ultimately, it's about give and take and understanding each other. But none of those things really matter when you love each other as much as you two clearly do.
    Poetically speaking, your rhyme and rhythm is excellent for anyone of any age - let alone 11.

    Take care and all the best,


    ps glad this has been nominated - it's an excellent collaboration.

    Hey chatterbox :-)
    Even though you've both taken the mickey out of each other this is really touching and speaks of a very close father-daughter bond.
    Both poems are wonderful written and rhymed and made me go 'aw!'.
    Very well done :-) x

    So I was home Saturday lunch time and had to go away again on Sunday afternoon

    To keep us busy I set a challenge, I would choose a title for Dani and she would write a poem based around it. So I set the title "how stupid is my dad" as you can see she eviscerated me lol

    She said it's only fair that my title should be "how stupid is my daughter"

    We decided to post it as a collaboration as it just seems right

    Hope the results raise a giggle
