Mothers and Daughters Ought to Be Friends
|Mothers and daughters* ought to be friends,|
But there is a lot that gets in the way.
The determined pursuit of opposite ends,
Ends up as harsh words we would rather not say.
Yet storms tend to pass, and passions abate,
So we must be patient, and fight, if we must,
*Please feel free to change to "Parents and children," "Fathers and sons," etc.
