Dinner preparations were chaotic
As only family can conjure
They quibbled o’er trivia
Mom’s perpetual overfull fridge
How much broccoli is enough?
(make it all!)
They ate in that syncopated
Of love and familiarity
Evening’s piece de resistance:
Her baby reminds her that
Once again, she ruined his life!
(In the usual way that all moms ruin their children’s lives- daily)
She is surely doing something right.
