A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Happy Mother’s Day? – 13 May 2007
By Mary T. Hoffman

As a follow-up to yesterday’s Blog, I wrote this poem for today:

Happy Mother’s Day?
By Mary T. Hoffman
(13 May 2007)

Happy Mother’s Day, you say?
Not if you’re a sow or cow
Crammed and jammed,
Insane with pain
Day after day,
Night after night –
Unending fright
From birth to death,
Hidden away; how can we say
“Happy” Mother’s Day?
