An Alien Concept


Mother impressed with physiotherapy, I recommended she
stay in Kosmos Old Age Home to complete the course, NO
mom said, I have appointments with pupils at home - I
called twin sis to organise mother's stay

Airily sis said she was going to inform mom without pre-
amble she would stay in Kosmos longer than planned-
I sighed, sis pays and does everything for mom except
treating her with consideration and respect - oh well

According to New Age Gurus this could only happen to
mom - having a dutiful but inconsiderate daughter - if
mom had done something to attract it, so I arranged
that mom cancel her appointments - promising

If mom stayed, my son would get acquainted with his
grandma - but for my meddling, mother and sis would
have been at loggerheads again - for them, clear
communication is an alien concept…

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
