My Morning Confession :) - Poem by Mary Nagy

Ok, I guess I'll confess!
My hair is REALLY a mess!
I just drove them to school
and they said ''Mom, that's not cool''.
But today I could really care less!

''Today is my only day off.
Just let your friends snicker and scoff.
Does it matter to you
if I wear slippers or shoes?
Is your image of me that far off''?

When she looked at my head in the car
her jaw dropped and she said ''Oh my stars! ''
''What is that on your head?
Is it living or dead? ''
I'm so glad we don't have to drive far! ''

Well, I may not be looking my best
but, what I saw I would never have guessed!
In the back of my hair
was what made the kids stare.......
cause it looked like a fluffy birds nest!

Oh, ''Who cares if my hair looks absurd? ''
''It's the new style.....or haven't you heard?
You should feel slightly blessed
that I even got dressed........
and I made a new home for a bird! ''

    Even guys with almost no hair have bad hair days, thus I love the baseball cap! (Report) Reply

    This is hilarious and true to life. They'll understand when they end up driving their kids to school.
