    now
    here are your shares
    from broken dishes
    and glasses my mom
    never thought you'd be serving from...
    who did??
    a gift of your prime
    was sold for a dime
    forgetting that many women
    crafted their table
    and dining arrangements after your
    rare
    design- what a shame...
    a cook
    turned crook
    now...we can expect a book or even a movie
    in the next
    few months on cable
    while you're
    wetting tables in the prison kitchen
    with your own tears
    wishing you had those years
    where homemaking was not your profit but your peace.
