a card with hearts of pink and red,
but then I thought
I’d rather spend the money on me instead.
It’s awfully hard to buy things
when one’s allowance is so small,
so, I guess you’re pretty lucky
I got you anything at all.
Happy Mother’s Day to you.
There I said it.
Now, I’m done.
So how ’bout getting out of bed,
and cooking breakfast for your son?
