Mother's Day Poem of the Day

A Riddle
by Anonymous

One night 'neath the light of a silvery moon
There sat on a log pile a fat raccoon
And also a little most cunning masked fellow
Eating of melon so juicy and mellow.
The largest raccoon and the wee little one
Thought they were having a bushel of fun,
And laughed very loudly in notes of pure glee,
For they were as happy as happy could be.

So here is a riddle I'll give now to you,
Guess the relation there was 'twixt the two.


Most everyone answers, "Why, father and son."
Not so--'twas a mommy and her little one.
