Prologue of the book 2020
just for fun
"It's Mother's Love" by Barb Hensongispsaca
Wow, I found a germoplezit
which no one seemed to want.
It rolled right up and brushed my leg,
I didn't have to hunt.

I took it home to show my Mom.
She gave it quite a look.
She never saw one quite like it,
she found her ref'rence book.

My Mama said they were extinct,
but I had one right here.
It really was quite special, thought,
I had nothing to fear.

It teaches kids respect and pride,
work ethics and the like,
and how to save your money if
you want to buy a bike.

It cuddles pain of night away
brings laughter where there's tears.
It teaches all the things of life
and sooths away all fears.

I re'lized why it's now extinct -
it does what Mothers do.
But they add love and gentle touch ...
'cause they give hugging, too.

The book continues with Survival. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.
