Where did the time Go
Where did the time Go?
“Mom I think my finger’s falling off”
Not to worry I’ll be there in a second.
“Mom I think the roof caved in”
Get under the bed for now, I’m on the phone.
“Mom, Sister’s on the roof”
“Mom, the house behind us is on fire”
Bring them a bucket; I’m drying my hair.
“Mom, there’s a black spider on my wall”
He’ll keep; I’m watching Days of Our Lives.
“Mom, the paper boy’s collecting”
I don’t have $2. I’ll be at the bank.
“Mom, there’s a policeman at the door”
Get Daddy. Now.
“Mom, I’m married with kids”
Where was I?
For Colette from Mama
