The Everyday Special of the House

The Every Day Special of the House

By Elton Camp

In many families it is on the bill of fare
The parents know too well it’s there

For the dish nearly drives them wild
The one served by an ungrateful child

Because it will always include
A generous portion of attitude

Smothered with dirty looks galore
Of eye rolling there’s very much more

Then there’s sarcasm served as dessert
It matters not how the cruel words hurt

An offspring to parents surely does owe
At bare minimum of appreciation to show

How wrong to take what they provide
Then repay with cruel remarks so snide

For all they suggest show vile contempt
As if from common courtesy exempt

After the parents have passed away
It’ll be too late any kinds words to say
