Mommy Love

My gift is Mom. Even though I'm
old and wise enough to be prime
minister, sometimes my feeling
gets gnarled up in yucky reeling
and that's when I know that this time 

no matter how much I can rhyme
and pretend that things are sublime
real life insists on fact dealing.
                                              My gift is Mom.

She holds me when I wish to climb
through the roof to commit some crime.
No, it isn't selfish stealing
it's merely me needing healing
when staid bankers deem me sub-prime.
                                               My gift is Mom.
