MOMMA KNOWS BEST -- for contest

Momma always told me, "Children should be seen but not heard." 'Til I streaked through her Garden Party And muttered not a word. Momma always told me, "The best birth control is an aspirin held tight between your knees." But my boyfriends ALL had headaches! Glad I put their heads at ease! Momma always told me, "They won't buy the cow if they get the milk for free," So I never served my best beaus milk, Just liquor, wine and me! Poor momma had another saying, "You'll be the death of me!" Momma, you were always right! There was arsenic in that tea. 7/1/15

I really enjoyed this piece. Great sense of humour. Momma does know best but experience is a wise teacher :-)
