My 80 Years On Earth
It was many years ago that my mother said: "I see,
Your hair is very red, so you must look much like me."
My cousin said that I was inconsiderate, you know,
Because I made her mother walk through a lot of snow
To carry lots of water to bathe that very little me
And to get lots of things that doctors need, you see.
I even came before my folks could fix their cabin, too.
So the cabin wasn't much, but for me it had to do.
