Your Mother Doesn’t Love You Anymore

For a while you’ve suspected,
But now you know for sure;
Your once-loving mother
Doesn’t love you anymore

She used to make you sandwiches
From peanut butter and jelly,
But now the jelly is petroleum
And the peanut butter’s a little smelly.

She used to buy you coloring books
And crayons and magic markers,
But now she just huffs all your glue
And complains your work has gotten darker.

For a while there were warning signs
And causes for alarm,
Like when she said you were growing apart,
Then gave you indian burns on your arm.

She used to tuck you in at night
And help you say your prayers,
But now she swears that while you sleep
You’ll be eaten up by bears.

She used to take you places
Like the playground and the park,
But now she makes you stay at home
While she goes, by herself, after dark.

Yes, for a while you’ve suspected,
But now you know for sure;
Your once-loving mother
Doesn’t love you anymore.

*First poem I’ve written in a long time.  I would love to have some Shel Silverstein type drawings to accompany it.
