Poem by Doniell Cushman
It's true about the yoga pants
The trendy water bottles too
And it's hard to have a sedan
So you get an SUV or a van
You give the children opportunities
Soccer, dance, the scouts
Whatever they need you provide
Making sure they're always preoccupied
Often you dream of escape
Or at least look for some respite
While the laundry is never ending
And dinner is always overwhelming
You shop in bulk and look crazy
Have a schedule that rivals professionals
Who are paid much more money
But you are no dummy
