Mother’s Day comes around so fast,

reminding us all, it’s time

to get in touch and say ’Hello’ and

send a card with a suitable rhyme.

 

If only Mum knew how busy I am?

The computers crashed today, and

I had to work through my lunch break

as the year-end is up in May.

 

I pulled in at the ‘Services’,

to get some petrol and grab a card,

but the verses were all too sloppy

and I really looked ever so hard.

 

Just as I was giving up

I spotted one with a dog that would fit,

though the words inside were negligible.

She’d say that my partner had chosen it!

 

But I had to get it anyway,

as it was a last minute bid!

It was too late for choc’s and flowers

so I put in twenty quid.

 

I dashed out to the post van,

that from nowhere had appeared.

‘This card can’t go in here’ said the man

as we both now, at it peered.

 

‘It needs a first class stamp on it,

if you want it to get there on time’

I swear for just a second, I was

nearly hung for committing a crime.

 

‘But seeing as how it’s for Mother’s Day,

if you give me the value of the stamp,

I’ll see as it’s put in the sack with the rest

when I get back to camp’.
