MAMA SAYS

by Brian Estes

Mama says it’s raining cats and dogs
I don’t see any
Mama says a penny
For your thoughts
I got no penny
Mama says my head is in the clouds
It’s on my neck
She says a watched pot
Never boils
But I say what the heck?
Mama says she’d like to make a toast
I hope there’s jam
Says Uncle Sam
Will rob her blind
I never met the man
And when I come to think of it
I got no Uncle Sam
Mama says I have a hollow leg
But do I really?
Says my eyes are bigger
Than my stomach
That’s just silly
I ask Mama for a puppy
Mama answers slow
She says, “We’ll see.”
Oh, woe is me
I guess the answer’s no
