Back to School

Back to School

I’m starting to see them everywhere

mad mothers and their kids

procuring pens and notebooks now

and tennis shoes with skids.

They’re preparing for September

when they all return to school

and it’s a yearly ritual

quite like the golden rule.

Refrain:

“I need another iPad

and want a different phone

you’ll have to buy it for me

or I’ll take out my own loan.”

Their dads have all but disappeared

since shopping is a strain

as long as mom has credit cards

he’ll be the ball and chain.

Though if his children grew too fast

and the clothing bill’s a mound

he’ll come outta his hiding

just to put his big foot down.

Refrain:

“I need another iPad

and want a different phone

you’ll have to buy it for me

or I’ll take out my own loan.”
