Mommy Loves You

A mother's love knows no boundaries

Old Man Winston sat on a wall

He taunted the children who walked by

Their parents often heard them call

He always escaped as he was so sly


Old Man Winston went too far

The children threw stones at him

Hard enough so his body began to mar

He was laughed at by Little Boy Jim


Old Man Winston wanted revenge

On all of those pesky children

Little Boy Jim was sitting on a bench

He crept closer while staying hidden


Little Boy Jim's mother, Mrs. Milton

Saw him approach her oblivious son

She quickly tackled Old Man Winston

He tried his might but couldn’t run


Mrs. Milton called out to her son

Dinner was cooked and ready on the table

There were dishes more than one

Meat of Old Man Winston, it's true not fable

    I liked the twist at the end. At the end of the fourth stanza, would the final be better if it were: But try as he might, he couldn't run.
