Humorous poem

Mother knows best
That's what they say
But does it always
Work out that way?

Let's look at Eve
The Mother of all
She ate the apple
And she took the fall

And Mother O'Leary
Kept a cow right in town
When the cow kicked a lantern
Chicago burned down

Marie Antoinette
French Queen Mother so mean
She said "Let them eat cake"
They said back "Guillotine"

And dear Mother Nature
When she has a bad day
She's just likely to send
A volcano your way

Electronics have you?
If their mother boards stop
You'll may very well find
It's five hundred a pop

So Mother knows best
Is that really the way?
Of course it is so
And here's what I say

Our mothers know best
Yes, it's the truth
They always are right
And I have the proof

You see they are perfect
So don't make a fuss
How else could they birth
Such perfection as us!
