The Everyday Special of the House

The Every Day Special of the House

 

By Elton Camp

 

In many families it is on the bill of fare

The parents know too well it’s there

 

For the dish nearly drives them wild

The one served by an ungrateful child

 

Because it will always include

A generous portion of attitude

 

Smothered with dirty looks galore

Of eye rolling there’s very much more

 

Then there’s sarcasm served as dessert

It matters not how the cruel words hurt

 

An offspring to parents surely does owe

At bare minimum of appreciation to show

 

How wrong to take what they provide

Then repay with cruel remarks so snide

 

For all they suggest show vile contempt

As if from common courtesy exempt

 

After the parents have passed away

It’ll be too late any kinds words to say
