Mom Said 'Remember Them'


The childless, Father remember them
they are termed barren
the subject-matter of in-laws
the meal of their evil tongues
remember them.

The single ladies, Oh Father
it's their will to have family
a husband and children
but it ain't their wish to be single
remember them.

The widow, My Father
give them love they miss
their integrity is questioned
their cries, watch it father
remember them.

Those your daughters, Father
facing intimidation
them: street's laughingstock
they have no peace in heart
shame on them can't be bore
remember them FATHER.
