What My Mom Says
My mother says, â€œPick up your room.â€
She says it every day.
I told her it was too heavy to lift.
Thatâ€™s what I always say.
â€œDrink up your milk,â€ my mother said.
She knows Iâ€™ll answer that.
I say, â€œIâ€™d rather drink it down.â€
Then, I gave it to the cat.
â€œAt 8:00 you must go right to bed,â€ she says. She says that every night.
I said, â€œIâ€™d rather go left instead.â€
And, then I turned out the light.
