Hell Mary

Hell Mary 

full of piss and vinegar.
Crazy Mary!
You know your mother,
she’s just a little crazy.
Honey, I’ve always been crazy.
Hell on wheels, Mary!
Proud Mary, keep on burnin
rollin, rollin, rollin.
You know your mama, she’s half
crazy, but you got to take care
of her. She’s had a hard life.
Oh lord, here comes hell Mary!
She’s got a big heart.
But you know your mama.
You don’t know nothin, little girl.
You’ve got to take care of her.
You think you’re so smart.
Your mama loves you more
than her own life.
You don’t love me. You never have.
She needs your love, you’re blessed
to have a mother that cares about you.
You don’t know what love is.
She’s your mama, the only one you got.
You’re not my daughter anymore.
You better pray you don’t have a child
like you.
Hell Mary, full-tee on.
Pray for her.
I can take care of myself.
I don’t need you.
Proud Mary, there she goes
rollin, rollin, down the river.
Someday when I’m dead
and gone, you will wish
you had loved me.
Your mama loves you.
She just has a hard time, suge.
Someday you’ll be all alone.
You know how she is.
Someday, when I’m dead
and gone.

This is one in a series I wrote after my mother's death.
