Don’t Mess with Mom
Next day I took him shopping
at the local Goodwill Store.
I told him, “ pick out all you want,
there’s shirts and pants galore.
I’ve called and checked with C.S.D.
Who said they didn’t care
if I bought you K-Mart shoes
instead of those Nike Airs.
I’ve canceled that appointment
to take your driver’s test.
The C.S.D. is unconcerned
so I’ll decide what’s best.”
I said “no time to stop and eat,
Oor pick up stuff to munch.
And tomorrow you can start to learn
to make your own sack lunch.
Just save the raging appetite,
and wait till dinner time.
We’re having liver and onions,
a favorite dish of mine.”
He asked “can I please rent a movie,
to watch on my VCR?”
“Sorry, but I sold your TV,
for new tires on my car.
I also rented out your room,
you’ll take the couch instead.
The C.S.D. requires
just a roof over your head.
Your clothing won’t be trendy now,
I’ll choose what we eat.
That allowance that you used to get,
will buy me something neat.
I’m selling off your jet ski,
dirt-bike & roller blades.
Check out the ‘Parents Bill of Rights”.
It’s in effect today!
Hey hot shot, are you crying,
why are you on your knees?
Are you asking God to help you out,
instead of C.S.D.?”
