If every single soldier
took his Mother off to war,
it would be the quickest battle
that was ever fought before.

the kindest sweetest Mother
would turn into something wild
should any sort of danger
pose a threat to her dear child.

There’s something in a Mother
that clicks in when baby’s born –
that tells her to protect him
and keep him safe from harm.

the female of the species
is the fiercest, so they say –
So take the Mothers with you –
you’ll be home within the day.
