What Moms Do

by Betty Castleberry  
5/12/2008 / Poetry

Moms are quite special, they've got lots to do
They fix chicken soup when their kids have the flu
Some moms are skinny, they're as thin as a rail
And some moms do not like to step on the scale

Moms wash up the dishes and make up the beds
They pile on pillows in blues, greens, and reds
They gather up socks stained with ugly brown goo
And read story books, several more than a few

And some moms might work in an office all day
But some moms stay home, though they don't get to play
Dust bunnies are hiding behind every door
They chase them all out, till there aren't any more

They rock crying babies, pat dogs on the head
They get them all quiet and put them to bed
They stir up some cinnamon, sugar and flour
The cookies are baked in less than an hour

Moms wipe away moustaches painted in milk
Some can make dresses out of shimmering silk
Some know how to knit or stick beads on with glue
Some know how to swim or do art or Kung Fu

Moms can be funny, or happy or sad
But a mom can't ever, no never, be dad
They like to get gifts of freshly picked flowers
And help kids with baths, or sometimes with showers

Moms curl their hair and put stuff on their faces
They do this before they go out to nice places
They fill their purses with tissues and crackers
To wipe runny noses and feed little snackers

And when it comes time for the long day to end
Moms get very tired, there's no need to pretend
They kiss all the kids and they tuck them in tight
And hope they all sleep, at least most of the night
