Ask me what it’s like to help raise

My mother: you have to show her

You care for her, and give her praise.


Easy you say? Have you ever

Listened to grown-ups who can talk

Incessantly about things from

Zebra to alphabet, yet balk

At a question like, “Where’s my thumb?”

But you can’t blame them for trying

Ev’ry trick in the book to stop

The flow of thoughts which I’m sighing:

How? When? Who? Why? And where’s the top?


Before I can sneak a query

Under Mum’s conversing with Chris,

Nicely must I climb her weary

Knee and offer her a wet kiss;

Else I won’t get something to drink,

Regardless of what you might think.

About cdsmiller17

I am an Astrologer who also writes about world events. My first eBook "At This Point in Time" is available through most on-line book stores. I have now serialized my second book "The Star of Bethlehem" here. And I am experimenting with birth and death charts. If you wish to contact me, or request a birth chart, send an email to cdsmiller17@gmail.com. (And, in case you are also interested, I have an extensive list of celebrity birth and death details if you wish to 'confirm' what you suspect may be a past-life experience of yours.) Bless.
