The Mother's Day Card

A mum's day card is always nice
with words by Helen Steiner-Rice
and pictures of a perfect rose -
but you're not wanting one of those
'cause Steiner-Rice is sickly sweet.
It's straight and boring, incomplete
without a touch of wicked glee.
Lets face it mum, that's just not me.

So let's dispense with those simplistic
greeting cards with unrealistic
words of highest, purest love.
For when, you see, push comes to shove
I celebrate this Mother's Day
by writing silly rhymes to say:
"Of all the many things you've done
the best, I guess, is raise a son."
