365 Poems – 155 Working Mother (Rough First Draft)

Working Mother

I can tell you how to spell courage, son,

and I can also tell you about the properties of steel.

 

We’re all enemy targets, every last one.

I can tell you how to spell courage, son.

 

Your need to keep your mask close and stay strong

in the country, you’ll be digging up the evening meal.

 

I can tell you how to spell courage son

and I can also tell you about the properties of steel.
