A Mother’s Role

    This paper does not have to be an A paper, I am completely okay with a B. I’m not the strongest writer and am pressed for time. I started with my topic -A Mother’s Role- from the poem Marks by Linda Pastan. Basically how the mother of the household is undervalued by her husband and children…Thanks in advance.


    My husband gives me an A
    for last night’s supper,
    an incomplete for my ironing,
    a B plus in bed.
    My son says I am average,
    an average mother, but if
    I put my mind to it
    I could improve.
    My daughter believes
    in Pass/Fail and tells me
    I pass. Wait ’til they learn
    I’m dropping out.
