Tony and Tristyn the Terrible Twins



Tony and Tristyn, the terrible twins. They’re one today and the trouble begins.
Tony’s breaking toys, Tristyn’s climbing the stairs, Dad’s pulling his hair out, and growling like a bear.

Tristyn and Tony, now are both two, they’re muddy and messy, what is Dad to do?
Tristyn and Tony are jumping on the bed, Dad’s yelling, “Stop that, you’re causing a pain in my head!”

Tony and Tristyn have reached age three, fighting with each other, they’re not to happy.
Dad says,“Come on you two, it’s time to clean, leave each other alone, don’t be so mean!”

Four years old, these twins are now. Dad wants good little kids, but he don’t know how.
Tony spilled a drink, Tristyn’s coloring on the walls. Dad says, “Get down from there, before you fall!”

Tristyn and Tony, now are both five. They’re in the car,honking and trying to drive!
“Get out of the car, What is wrong with you two!” Dad’s nerves are a wreck, what will he do?

Twins Tristyn and Tony are now each six. They’re chasing each other, hitting with sticks
“Hey!” Dad shouts, “That’s not very nice!” They laugh as Dad slips and falls on the ice.

Tony and Tristyn have reached age seven. Dad talks about God, and speaks of Heaven.
The twins say, “Dad, we will be so good!” Dad thinks God’s message is understood.

Eight years of age, and still plenty of trouble. Dad’s work load has certainly doubled
“It’s time for your bath, and then a snack.” Dad steps on a toy, he hears it crack!

Tony and Tristyn are now both nine. Lessons they’re learning and doing just fine.
“I’m proud of you both, for doing so good. I knew with some patience, that you both would.”

Years have gone by, the twins are now ten. Soon the trouble will start all over again.
“you can not go play, until homework is done!” Dad knows these two just want to have fun.

Tristyn and Tony are both eleven now. Still being little angels, Dad is thinking, ”WoW!”
Chores both these kids do, without a whine. Dad thinks, “these two have been good, since the age of nine!”

They’ve reached twelve years and are showing Dad Love. Dad thanks his lucky stars and God up above.
“I love you both more than you’ll ever know.” Dad gives them a kiss, and let’s loving feelings show.

Tony and Tristyn are now in their teens. Here they go again, starting to be mean!
Four years of goodness have come to an end. Dad knows more trouble is around the bend.

Dad says to you, the reader of these rhymes, “With kids there will be bad, but mostly good times! As a parent, never stop showing LOVE. Don’t lose hope, if they kick or they shove. Life is a learning lesson, parents have to teach. No goal is too big, or too far out of reach. You kids will grow up and be just like you. So be careful of the things you say, or you do. I hope you have learned a lesson from me. To you and your children, I say, “Blessed Be!”

Barry Litherland: This is an excellent novel, perfectly pitched for its target audience. The narrative is fast moving, the dialogue crisp and the characters interesting. It was gripping even for an adult reader. I would recommend a thorough and close edit to reveal the full potential of this very good book.

pencil: It is all about love and kindness and good worthy things winning in the end. Emotionally very charged and very nice to feel people over coming their circumstances.I also thought too much like a feel good magazine style.

John Scriven: Great story!I loved it and would recommend it. Some spelling errors in the second half were a loo distracting, but overall an excellent read

crissy: Awesome work. The characters are so beautifully flawed and easy to relate to. The protagonist Bethany Hill is a woman that I would definitely want to meet in real life. The author has managed to make me visualize the story like a movie. The two time frames of past and present are also so beautifu...

pencil: I thought there was some errors for example the way the teachers did not pick up about the family's predicament but on the whole it was a very good story and I enjoyed it. The thing which would have made sense to me would have been if the children stole the bottles and the money as Jon was the ...

pencil: Totally believable uncanny most sinister and all about gun shooting and all that. I needy for stories this is a gritty one with amazing love and truth for the world we believe we will never have. That we believed would not happen that gunning down innocent people and children being involved in th...

jenneyescoto: I'm only six chapters in, yet I'm already hooked. It didn't start too slow nor too fast. It has just enough background information to keep the plot going in a decent pace. There are just some minor grammar mistakes and phrasing that could be easily corrected. Other than that, I'm really enjoying ...
