All I want for Mother’s Day is a pregnant guppy
No kitty, no hippo, no cockatoo, nor puppy
No perfect yellow rose, nor reconstructed nose,
No silver spoon from which to sup,
No gold-etched china saucer and cup,
No trinkets nor blankets, not even books
No cell phone, new chair, nor shelves with coat hooks,
No flowers in a stunning vase
Nothing made of satin, denim, nor lace
No lotions, no oils – nothing used in tubs.
No pictures nor pitchers, not even back rubs.
All I want is a pregnant guppy —
I pray she’ll not be mean and vicious
Who finds her children quite delicious!
