Mother's Days

Afraid of getting left out in the cold,
She froze her eggs and put baby on hold,
Made a lotta dough while her milk dried up,
Then handed Prince Charming a plastic cup;
She had her little Miracle just shy of menopause,
Delivered on schedule to general applause,
(Caesarian birth just to be safe);
Spared no expense on her test tube waif,
Nursery, daycare, and school, she vowed,
All the best and beyond, cum laude;
But all through youth her precious good-as-gold,
Puzzled herself with what couldn't be told:
Why Mommy looks so preternaturally old.
