What Mama Says

my mother says sometimes,

Let’s do it, even if it’s wrong.

or

Let’s don’t and say we did.

she learned these words from her mother

and my child shall know them, too.

situations in which these phrases sing

come along regularly

fun is had

trouble avoided

mischief is managed

occasionally, they will take on another tone

somber overtures that layer their meanings
