An “Industrious” Little Girl

This is probably the only tattoo

I’ve ever considered getting done

That an a magazine clipping someone gave me

When I was young.

I should explain lmao

One time at vacation Bible school

My mom was giving me my

Adkins diet lunch substitution

With the other moms on duty

And for whatever reason

That day, we were handed

Scripture cards based on our names ?

Each name had an explanation

My dead name, in this case

Meant

“Industrious”

And the gaggle of mothers laughed

As my mom chided in

“Yeah, I’ll say”

Ever since I’ve been wondering

Whether my mom laughs with me or

At me, knowing full well

It’s both, on any given day.
