Who is at Mary Jo's Tea Party? Are you there? please come and critique this poem?

Mary Jo is at my house now And I have barely woken up She’s shaking me, I say “oh wow!” “What do you want? Bring me a cup Of hot green tea, that jasmine stuff.” She brings me coffee black instead And chatters like a chipmunk, wild She forces me right out of bed She is a pushy little child It’s hard to... show more Mary Jo is at my house now
And I have barely woken up
She’s shaking me, I say “oh wow!”
“What do you want? Bring me a cup
Of hot green tea, that jasmine stuff.”

She brings me coffee black instead
And chatters like a chipmunk, wild
She forces me right out of bed
She is a pushy little child
It’s hard to hide from her, my smile

She brought her tea set over here
She had the day quite well planned out
Her intention was very clear
Animal crackers spread about
Little napkins next to the cups

Children appear from who knows where
Now spreading blankets on the lawn
And some of them came quite prepared
Sue brought a radio turned it on...
The country station playing songs

“I’ve got a brand new pair of ...
Roller skates, you’ve got a brand new....”
“Joanie, Joanie please don’t cry...”
“Sneaky snake...”
...“Watermelon Wine

I fill the teapots with the tea
We all sit down act like adults
Monica is sitting next to me
And soon its seems exchanging insults
The boys are getting restless

The sun is hot but trees lend shade
Mary Jo’s party was a knock out
Out in the yard relaxed I laid
Amongst the children’s happy shouts
On a blanket as music played
Update: Orange marmalade, I presume?
Update 2: *click....click* starting to format new poem... marmalade / mad hatter and hare/ will a wild hair do?
