Next Time

The other day my sister was trying to dress you after a spa.
She said you wouldn't lift your leg.
You had your trousers half on.
You said yes, yes, yes,
but the foot stayed on the ground.

She thought
this is my mother
there is no way
to make her lift her foot.

My sister laughed when she told me.
She said people were looking at you.

I said, 'Next time make her sit down.'
I said, 'Next time use the family changing room.'
I said, next time get yourself a better mother,
there's something wrong with this one, my sister.
Next time be more careful, this mother is broken, I said.
