For My Mother, On Her Birthday

An Ode to Motherhood
To a mom who cooks and cleans
And washes all my favorite jeans
The last time that you left a spot
Very happy I was NOT!
But where a spot you did not miss
Turns out another called a kiss
Life ain’t that easy, you see
I guess that’s why you’re stuck with me.
(And I still love ya, Mom!)
