My Mother


My mother was a tough old bird, she didn’t scare too easy;

There was hardly anything that ever made her queasy.

The Great Depression left its mark upon her disposition;

She had no use for anyone who played the grand patrician.


We were told to clean our plates, or go to bed by golly;

And if we dared to sass her back, she hit us like a trolley.

But beneath the grim façade I knew a tender heart

Wanted but the best for us, although her words were tart.


The day I crashed my bicycle and bled on my new shirt

She shook me some in anger, and then whispered “Are you hurt?”

She soaked the shirt in tap water and when the stain was out

She told me to get going and complete my paper route.


My mother was a tough old bird, as I have said before;

She never bought us candy when she took us to the store.

The lessons that I learned from her were harsh, perhaps severe;

But I cannot think back to her without a grateful tear.


Work at Home for Single Parents and Others!


Nathan and Tim feel strongly that, under ordinary circumstances, a mother’s place is with her children in the home, not out in the workforce.  We realize there are many circumstances in today’s modern world that will not allow this – but we are dead set against the mother who works long hours outside the home merely to finance luxuries such as vacations and home redecorating, to the neglect of her children.  We also know that single parents can find it terribly stressful and expensive to leave their children with a babysitter or at daycare.  Therefore, we take great satisfaction in recommending the following website for those who wish to work part-time at home and make a decent wage.  We have thoroughly vetted this website and vouch that all the jobs on it are legitimate.  So, if you are looking for work at home, we wish you good luck and hope this Rat Race Rebellion website will be useful to you!
