EMMA SUE’S BIRTHDAY PARTY
She’s looking happy for a change
“Emma Sue’s a ‘Four-Eyes”
We call her that and other names
First a threat the stick!
But then her Mother appears with some paper bags
Bulging within thick
Miss Mengin’s room is at attention
So early too then
It’s only 9:00 a.m.
The bags are placed within a closet
Then locked away
The entire LONG day
Her Mother wears some worried wrinkles
Says a word to Emma’s teacher frowns
But throws a smile before she leaves for town
At lunch on the grounds
Emma Sue as usual stands aside single
Doesn’t try to mingle
But there is something within
Hope in her eyes
Shoulders up elevated chin
By 2:15 excitement of the morning seems forgot
By Emma Sue? Certainly not!
Both she and teacher rise together
All eyes are lifted puzzled looks
Quite forgotten the grammar books
Girls and boys begin to whisper
‘Four Eyes’ grinning see her cheeks bloom
At front of a thrilling room
“It’s Emma Sue’s Birthday
See what she and her mother have baked
One for each and every person little cakes
Put your books away
No more lessons
The rest of the way”
For Emma Sue I must say
Those tasty cakes made all the difference
Well? At least for one day

WHO'S IN CHARGE?
has crossed the line?
Do not cave!
YOU are THE mama!
They don't behave?
Just one more whine
you must be resigned
to drive them home, to bed/pajamas!
Then, enjoy some time to have the wine

Waiting for that one time,
just cradling the moment, mom,
when you can say, “Good job!”
