Don't Mess With Mom!

To whom it may concern:  Iwant to make this PERFECTLY clear.  This poem is not about my child Eric.  He is the perfect child and would never do this!!!!  But in case you have one who has tried this....Here you go....ammuntition!


               My son came home from school one day,
                  with a smirk upon his face.
                 He decided he was smart enough,
                   to put me in my place.

             "Guess what I learned in Civics Two,
                 that's taught by Mr. Wright,
                 It's all about the laws today,
                The 'Children's Bill of Rights.'

                It says I need not clean my room,
                  don't have to cut my hair
                No one can tell me what to think,
                  or speak, or what to wear.

                 I have freedom from religion,
                 and regardless what you say,
                 I don't have to bow my head,
                 and I sure don't have to pray.

                 I can wear earrings if I want,
                and pierce my tongue &nose.
               I can read &watch just what I like,
                 get tattoos from head to toe.

                 And if you ever spank me,
                I'll charge you with a crime.
                 I'll back up all my charges,
                 with the marks on my behind.

                  Don't you ever touch me,
                  my body's only for my use,
                 not for your hugs and kisses,
                 that's just more child abuse.

                 Don't preach about your morals,
                  like your Mama did to you.
               That's nothing more than mind control,
                   And it's illegal too!

               Mom, I have these children's rights,
                  so you can't influence me,
              or I'll call Children's Services Division,
                   better known as C.S.D."

                Of course my first instinct was
                  to toss him out the door.
              But the chance to teach him a lesson
                 made me think a little more.

                I mulled it over carefully,
                   I couldn't let this go.
                  A smile crept upon my face,
                  he's messing with a pro.

                Next day I took him shopping
                 at the local Goodwill Store.
                I told him, "Pick out all you want,
                 there's shirts &pants galore.

                I've called and checked with C.S.D.
                  who said they didn't care
                 if I bought you K-Mart shoes
                  instead of those Nike Airs.
                 I've canceled that appointment
                  to take your driver's test.
                 The C.S.D. is unconcerned
                 so I'll decide what's best."

                I said "No time to stop and eat,
                  or pick up stuff to munch.
                And tomorrow you can start to learn
                to make your own sack lunch.

                 Just save the raging appetite,

                   and wait till dinner time.
                 We're having liver and onions,
                   a favorite dish of mine."

               He asked "Can I please rent a movie,
                   to watch on my VCR?"
                  "Sorry, but I sold your TV,
                  for new tires on my car

                 I also rented out your room,
                 you'll take the couch instead.
                    The C.S.D. requires
                 just a roof over your head.

                Your clothing won't be trendy now,
                  I'll choose what we eat.
               That allowance that you used to get,
                  will buy me something neat.

                 I'm selling off your jet ski,
                  dirt-bike &roller blades.
               Check out the 'Parents Bill of Rights',
                   It's in effect today!

I have this one saved on my computer and printed out.  I WILL be using it one day I'm sure.  I would have loved to have sent it to Tom's daughter in NY a couple years back...that's a long story.

Love it!  I know where I used to work before Bug was born, all the ladies were talking about these $100+ shoes they "had" to buy their children........I told them I didn't for Bubba.  They said, "oh, you will when he's older."  I told them there would never come a day I paid more for his shoes than the ones his daddy earned our living in.  And I never have.  ;o)  -  Barbara
