Mothers Dilemma Families Delight
It never fails you see,
With my family and me.
All are relaxed.
Wouldn't you know it,
They all want a snack.
Out to the kitchen,
They parade, one by one.
The cupboards are stocked,
But they can't see,
So it's back to the old T.V.
BUT WAIT! Mother's hungry.
She goes to prepare a simple snack.
Suggestions are coming,
So think, so fast.
Alas, Mothers simple snack,
Has turned into a banquet, no less.
Every thing is ready, a family delight.
Mother, well she has lost her appetite.
