    DEDICATION TO MOM (ON MOTHER’S DAY)

    Eat cake glow at feasts like the state police stay on alert
    No other way to play on mother’s day so hard she worked
    To raise me, love tunes and vibes and my room alive with books
    My teachers assigned homework made my dome perk stuff cooks
    The brains, but mommy helped sometime with a belt or peach tree
    Switch just to teach me which way is up, like Stacy Keach I be
    Playing cowboy in class shoot them up bang bang so my grades
    Weren’t great play spades on class breaks, like a bunch of grenades
    Ready to blow up and destroy thing a boy who clings to the unreal
    Education wasn’t my priority faced devastation as a minority the deal
    With my report card I was flunking and punking around so I tried
    To hide it from mom, she knew when I wasn’t true I flat out lied
    Somehow she’ll find out and discipline me, my wrong plan wouldn’t stand
    Had dog that can stand on two feet and beg and somehow bow wow demand
    Bread from the kitchen my head was itching with Duke hair cream
    Trying to get waves and wet the craves of girls so I had game extreme
    But bad aim it seem, mom taught me about life and made my route
    Nice soothe the humps and smooth the bumps a rough road no doubt
    Couldn’t afford school lunch it was cool to munch on peanut butter
    And jelly sandwiches from a packed bag as the facts drag on cats utter
    About my home bringing, had galore chores after school then homework
    Without mom would’ve failed divine and done jail time been alone and unalert
    As an unknown jerk but mother stood up gave me good luck learned to duck dirt
    So let me say thanks mom for being true and seeing me through I love you

    The countless times that mom came to our rescue, and we sometimes didn't realize that's what she was doing at the time. Wonderful dedication here rhymebad.
