I cannot be bothered and will no longer tolerate
Mom’s chaotic household nor her court of crazy siblings.
Now on the other side of a surprising sixty-five
Time’s up; time out; it’s time to conform.
Everything must go—just sell it!
She must take her place under her children’s roof
For they must needs serve their needy children.
neglected her own—
Used and abused time and time again
Stealing and sucking everyone’s
So let her stay on as a humble guest ‘til her rest
Or she can go end up like royal Queen Lear.
And let it be written so it will be clear
I swear I will no longer play her fool.Second childishness cannot rule.
