    Mom, I know you do the dishes

    And I know you cook the food

    I know you scrub down all the floors

    Even when you're in a bad mood.

    And every night you walk the dog

    While I'm watching all my shows

    On Thursdays you take out the trash

    And every spring you wash the windows.

    Mom, I know you're sad I'll go someday

    And leave you all alone

    But right now I'm only 35

    So what other place could I call home?

    Mum, I know I owe you the world

    And you deserve no less

    But circumstances have unfurled;

    I'm in a financial mess.

     

    For your Mother's Day party

    I write for you this ditty.

    My poetry skills are hearty

    And cheap, but oh so witty!
