The Glue

A woman holding a vase, which contains fresh flowers.

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of of 8 May 2021, dexterity.

First she cooks and she vacuums, can’t shirk,
Then she home-schools the child, a young Turk,
When we make the mistake,
Of suggesting a break,
She says “Sorry, I must leave for work”

Priority #1. I wanted avoid a Hallmark Holiday, which is a license only to print money. But..

Priority #2, I wanted to say something to all the moms out there.

How you juggle so many irons in the fire, and pop out functioning human beings at the end of the process, leaves me gaping in awe.
