The Last Time I Played "Mother, May I?"

The Last Time I Played ‘Mother, May I?’

To her, 

all may apply, 

but only the loftiest will be chosen.

A collection, 

if you will,
of those whose heads
can scrape the bottom
of the high seat of judgement 

as they pass underneath. 

I saw the photograph, 

was initially bewildered by the stern face. 

But a chuckle 

became a giggle

 became a guffaw

and irreverence never felt so damned good.
