Poetic Thursday: Mama Said

How quickly time passes. It’s Thursday again, and time for poetry with Pam, Angel Sammy and Teddy at Two Spoiled Cats.

This is our photo for inspiration this week:

And here’s my  poem:

Mama Said

“I could ride to town on your bottom lip. Are you tuning up to cry?”
Things my Mama said, long ago, in days gone by.

This poor little fella: he just looks so sad.
Mom would say: “Well, he has a lifetime to get glad”.

A mom is onto her little ones’ ploys
when she says no to candy and toys.

One day they’ll know that she did what she should,
that it was done with love and for their own good.
