I Love My Mom

by adewpearl

I love my mom, I really do,
but she can be so clueless.
When liverwurst is what she serves,
my mouth declares it's chewless.

She thinks a glob of mayonnaise
and mustard's all it takes
to mask the most unfortunate
of suppertime mistakes.

I normally don't mind some cheese --
I wouldn't even cower,
but she insists on pouring it
all over cauliflower.

She tries to dress her tuna up
in motherly devotion,
though I just wish her tuna fish
would jump back in the ocean.

But I forgive each time she's made
my churning stomach scream
when Mom serves up her specialty --
a sandwich of ice cream.


Many thanks to Miranda Signore for this photo of Sawyer enjoying a finger-licking good ice cream sandwich.
