Mothers Pride

This is my girl

She's looking so frail

She's her mother's pride

Thin, white, sliced.

She hurts with a cutter

She spreads just like butter

She's her mother's pride

With nowhere to hide.

This is my girl

A broken pearl

She's her mother's pride

Thin, white and sliced.

◄ One of those weird unexpected moments

The other C word ►

Sadly I do remember Maggie (David) and Cyril (Brian). Apology accepted, I'm only grateful that nobody has commented on the bottom falling out of my brazier!

I am sorry for this Hazel, but I simply could not resist.

This advert was purposely created for your excellent poem.

This was headed for the grand burning - I burned so many old notebooks that the bottom fell out of my brazier. Just thought it deserved a final read before entering oblivion.

Nice one Hazel.

Nice one Cyril was the catchphrase of the Wonderloaf advert in the 70's
