Written for: Poetic Asides 2019 April PAD Challenge – Day 17
Write a reason poem.
I do not need a reason.
Why? because I am your mother.
Cry all you want–no pierced ears.
Dyed hair was bad enough; but this other
act of piercing, I find barbaric.
Fact is, it detracts from your looks.
Yackety-yak to all your friends,
bracket me as mean, the hit the books.
