THE PARENT TRAPPED
I cling - you might think this is mean - hee hee
...but mom has fallen in love with a star.
Bewitched and switched by fortune cookie, she
has thrown a temper tantrum big so far.
She’s pimple gained and my large waist, and frown,
but I look fantastic - I’m phat for him.
I lock her in my room - I wear her gown.
She’s red as blood, her big fat legs not slim.
The bag is banging door - she threatens me.
So this’s tough love and that’s no way to treat
a bombshell-child and groom who’s wild for she.
I’ll slide a tray and feed her soon - I’m sweet!
This flip-flop worked just great for me, dear mom!
Like you taught me, just count to ten — be calm.
