Magpie Tales ~ The Mag 117 ~

Our challenge this week...a beautiful painting by Paul honor of Mothers' Day!  The image...

The Meal, 1891, by Paul Gauguin

Time to eat

On this day,
the kitchen is empty
the oven is cold.
Taking the day off;
they were all told.

It's just another day,
 our stomachs are empty
they mumbled and groaned
You're expecting us
to cook on our own?

On this special day,
I am sleeping in
then I'm taking a bath.
So fend for yourselves,
or suffer my wrath!

On this day,
the kitchen is empty
the oven is cold.
She took the day off!
She is so bold!!!
