You Kiss Your Mother With That Mouth?

Peyton Price because i said so

Don’t be embarrassed
about kissing your parents.
You sprang from our loins.

Here, I need a smooch.
“Or what? You’re gonna die, Mom?”

That one was all air!
Take another shot at it…
He made a fast break.

I kiss my son on the mouth.
We both act normal.

“You need a kiss, Mom?”
Yes, please. And I’ll take a hug.
(You seem to need one.)

How many kisses
did I plant on those dimples?
And how many more?
