Marriage Market

Please love my son, plead
the plaques like grave markers
and if you cannot love him
at least give me a grandchild
to pinch and scold
if not a boy then
I will accept a girl
and teach her to marry better
give as I gave and more
so she will never have to
fear for her son as I do for mine
