The Rat Race

This new trend seems to be a craze

 Where we chase each other in a rat race


Whom does he call mom I ask

 she says, Such a question you may not ask

Shouldn’t life be about multiplying our love

 Why then do we distance our love

Judging another mom ain’t fair

 Ain’t I just another mom that dumped an infant in the daycare

Ain’t this rat race a little funny

where we throw the babies in the hands of daycares and nannies !

I penned this poem when I met a colleague @ the cafeteria. Her 2 year old is being raised by his grand mom in a different city.
