Their school fete is round the corner,
It’s a fete cum annual day seasoner,

Her friend who is part of the organising committee,
Was keen that she was on stage dressed up and pretty,

I am usually the kind to egg her on,
But this time I felt rather withdrawn,
I recalled last year when she was on stage,
My heart sank to see her struggle to engage,
The stage where she once used to rule,
To see her struggle was oh so cruel,

But all kudos to my baby for her courage,
For her clearly it was more important to participate on stage
