Overstay (an acrostic poem)

Oliver watched his nephew throw the egg across the kitchen

Vai ducked, and the egg hit the cabinet above her

Eggs covered most of the kitchen surfaces

Really Jim knew he should do something

Still he didn’t say a word as Vai launched a flour bomb in retaliation

Teresa said Oliver could stay with them until he wanted to go home

According to Jim that had been five minutes after the brat had come in the door

You know, this might be the trick to get Teresa to think the same way
