What Mother Never Mentioned

What mother never mentioned,

Caused me pain,

What mother never mentioned,

Gave me something to gain,

What mother never mentioned,

Gave me a fright,

What mother never mentioned,

On the frosty night,

What mother never mentioned,

Was the fact that she would kill me,

What mother never mentioned,

Was the fact the she and me were no longer we,

What mother never mentioned,

Haunted me too much,

What mother never mentioned,

Made me run away and live in a hutch,

What mother never mentioned,

Was the fact that she was scared,

What mother never mentioned,

Left all of us unprepared,

What mother never mentioned,

Was the fact that she was sad,

What mother never mentioned,

Was the fact that she was also bad,

What mother never mentioned,

Was the fact that she loved me,

What mother never mention,

Showed me what I never did see.

The End
