A collection of humorous poetry looks at the lighter side of motherhood, capturing topics ranging from lipstick and girlfriends to friendly motherly warnings

Blackwell North Amer
For anyone who has ever had a mother - and that includes most of us - or is a mother (one way or another), Hal Sirowitz's poetry speaks the truth. About families, about relationships. Written in mother vernacular, these poems have the ring of adult nursery rhymes, with a tinge of horror and a ton of humor. Think Philip Larkin inspired by Norman Bates, or the Brothers Grimm of pop poetry. Think, think, think ... of your own mother. Or, if you are a mother, think of yourself Sirowitz's poems are deceptively simple, achingly familiar, brutally funny. Mother Said is the Mother of all poetry. Read it and laugh. Read it and weep.
