Let's Make This Clear

Let's make this clear,
And get it over with right now.
If I come home one more time,
To find you crying...
And this house is not clean?
You will have much more on your mind,
Than what people are saying about you.
I work too hard to fill your eyes with tears.
Especially when I could dropp a few myself.
And I'll give you one guess as to who has not time,
To do it!

I care about you and what you are going through,
I do.
I don't want you to think I don't.
However...
There is something about priorities,
You are going to remember.
Do as I say...
Or suffer the consequences!

'Ma?
WHY do you keep saying the same things to me,
Over and over again.
As if I'm blind! '

There is a lot you need to learn about life...
And what to value.
If I give you something to do,
And you leave that not done...
Your concerns about what people say about you,
Is going to be further and further away from your mind.
AND I'm doing the best I can to avoid that from happening.

Now...
What's it going to be?
My house cleaned?
Or a monster you have never seen?
With a sore behind and weeks of punishment delivered.
Trust me...
I have the magic to restore your 'vision'.
And eventually you will toughen up.
I guarantee it.
