Ma You're Driving Me Nuts

Spun web way up high, too far to reach from the floor-
Slightly bent forward, working with gloves and a broom,
Swinging away, causing the ladder to wobble even more,
She let out a scream when the spider crawled onto her broom.

I softened her fall, when she tumbled down, landing right on top of me.
"Ma you're driving me nuts, you're not that young anymore."
I was mad as hell, but we started to laugh as we lay there on the floor.
What can you do with an old stubborn woman like ma?

    Nothing you can do with a stubborn old woman but to let her drive you crazy while you love her to death at the same time, just like you showed in this hilarious and rollicking poem...Look out! Your funny bone is showing...Many congrats my friend - Tim
