Earth mothers


Mother and Brothers
Siblings and Cousins
Joint family system
Household member
Eleven in Number

P & S
Scarce to find
Two of a kind
Amiable and Kind

Donned the roles
Sans make up or clapboard
Mother Wife and law
With every prefix in

Up before dawn
Hot water for bath
Switched on
Timing bang on

Coffee second duty
For all and sundry
Equal share to everybody
No to none

Food for all
By 8 o'clock
I ternary fluctuating
Permutations confusing
On the table
Ready to serve
Lesson in management
Deserved recognition

Obligated execution
Committed Passion
Equanimity in Affection
Rarity in quality

Candles burning
Both ends
Ready to drop
Not a wink
Shut eye catch some Z's
Not written
Both their destinies

Common in Creation
Unique in Emotion
Daily by the Dozen
Handled with Silence

Take the Heat
No mean Feat
Shared the burden
Never Shaken

24*7 Spent
In a kitchen
Others first
Self last
Duty with Precision
Seldom commotion

Midnight oil burnt
The worse for wear
On the floor
What was left
Food so cold
Tough row to hoe

Beat Bushed
Under the Weather
Migraine to Split
Head into two
On pins and Needles
Shaken up Spaced out

Felt Blue
End of their tether
A bear with a sore head
Took a punch

Flowing River
They compare
Burning Sun
Justice Done

Friends and Family
House guests
Apart from the rest
Another term
For Hospitality
To be included
In the dictionary
Their names are apt
And Rhyme as well

An abode
For every hungry soul
Never rationed
Or proportioned

Complain Compare
Doesn't juxtapose
Equal and fair
2 in a Billion
Earth Mothers
By definition

Cognitive Emotional
The 3 types of Empathy
Available in totality
Felt them personally

Fable Fantasy
Parable Mythology
Dont have Women
Characters to compare
Not even on paper
Can you find
Lying if I am
I'll go blind

Luckiest I am
Benefited most
For Decades from Birth
Deeds from previous

Same place twice
Throw of the dice
Luck of the draw
Murphy's Law
Idioms for rarity
Evidence to the contrary

Emotion or Deed
Nothing in Return
Never Sought
Didn't care
What do you call these women
2 in a Billion
