Happy Flag Day, Mom!

Birthday Cake
  (with deepest apologies  to George M. Cohan)

You’re a grand old Mom
You’re a wonderful Mom
Whom troubles and travels can’t faze.
You’re the sanest of
The family I love*
A home for cat rescues and strays.
My heart beats true
When I think of you
And that’s neither a boast nor a brag.
Should e’r your birthday be forgot
Just look for the grand old flag

You’re a grand old Mom
You’re a marvelous Mom
Funny, supportive and kind.
You know the fix
For your grandkids’ tricks—
You’re there when I near lose my mind.
My heart beats true
When I think of you
You’re so worth a boast and a brag
Should e’r your birthday be forgot
Keep your eye on the grand old flag
I forgive you for the occasion’l nag
Keep your eye on the grand old flag

(and Happy Birthday, too!)
