Cereal Killer

There goes Jelly with a fruit loop up her nose
Spaghetti painted shirt holding on for dear life
Across the living room
Mom yelling from the backroom to keep it down
Turning the volume higher on the news
Pentasyllabic expletives follow
I try whispering commands
Jelly banshee cries oblivious

Clapping her hands with glee
What shapeless request
Would materialize
At every beck and call
