Mummy-Daddy - Poem by Frank O. Anywar

In our home now Mummy's the man
And Daddy the woman, Mummy shatters the door, bang!
With late night knocks, bang! bang! While Daddy suckles baby swat! swat!
Babysitting late at night singing lullabies, Daddy-Mummy just sits there cross-legged
Fuming whisky and smoking cigar, Upside down now as it stands in our home who's who
Is unknown, Mummy the Daddy? Or Daddy the Mummy?
