Happy Mother’s Day


We thought this year instead of cards
We’d frame the role in which you’ve starred
That is of course as a mother
A tougher job than any other

You juggled work as well somehow
We don’t know how you did it now
You never missed a play at school
And even learned the offside rule

We made your life hell in our teens
And yet you always stayed serene
You got us over all upsets
Proved life was best with no regrets

You taught us not to lose our rag
To be polite and not to brag
The adults that we have become
Is down to you, our lovely mum

We just have one complaint to make
And that’s our names, for heaven’s sake
Wayne and Jo with the surname King
What in the world were you thinking?
