You Ate My Mother
By Anonymous

My mama taught me life
She taught me right from wrong
She taught me how to live life through
And I miss her now she's gone

We used to sit in the sunshine
Nature glowing everywhere
Oh why has this cruel world taken her
When the flowers are still there?

I went and sat on that mound tonight
Where we would watch the dying light

"Why did it have to happen so soon?"
I scream my anger at the moon

I never told her what she meant
I hope she inside knew
But I guess it's the same for everyone
Pride turns your heart to goo

I curse the land
I curse the sky
I curse her even
Though I don't know why

But most of all
I curse all of you
For I'd still have my mother
If it wasn't for you

YOU ATE MY MOTHER
