(When absolutely essential!!!)

At times when I find too much drama,

I panic and search out a Momma…

Behind whose skirts

I hide my hurts,

Separating them by comma.

I can’t say why I chose,

But avoided runs in her hose…

She let me stay

Till the monster went away,

I thanked her for being so close!

Imagine a man of fifty-eight,

Scared and needing escape…

Barrages are scary

And he’s more wary

Of how to avoid burns on his nape.
