Happy Mothers Day

the songs we used to listen to
make the top ten on xm kids
the days pass faster and faster
but still not as fast as they grow
our cool cars, replaced by mini vans
our favorite songs don’t sound as good
after hearing the kidz bop version
a hundred or so times
and our day, mothers day
will bring badly cooked eggs
and clumsily wrapped presents
and we will love it all
cause no matter how bad
our parents fucked us up
we have the rest of our lives
to have a happy childhood
but theirs is now
their happy childhood
is right now
and we have got to get it right
