Funny Mothers Day Poem  #1

The first funny Mothers Day poem on this page is friendly and nice, and incidentally, it is illustrated by a photo of me and my two boys (who are now both fathers themselves!).

I've Known You
I’ve known you since my day of birth,
(perhaps a few months more).
There’s lots of nice things I could tell,
(but I refuse to bore).

You’re smart. You’re great. You’re all the best.
(There’s much more I could say.)
But I can only think of one. . . 
It’s Happy Mother’s Day!

Funny Mothers Day Poem #2

If I Could Choose
If I could choose a mother,
I’d choose a mom who’s fun,
Who likes to take me shopping
And won’t stop till we’re done.

I’d choose a mom who listens
When I have things to say,
Who when she sees I’m troubled
Will make the time to stay.

It’s not about baked cookies
(though those are good, it’s true!)
If I could pick and choose a mom,
You know that I’d 

Happy Mother’s Day!

Funny Mothers Day Poem #3

The next poem is more whimsical than funny. But I like whimsy. And so might your mom!

Zanzibar
My mother went to Zanzibar
To get a cup of tea.
The trip cost seven grand (or more).
The cup of tea was free.

My mother went to Timbuktu
To pass an afternoon or two.
She paused a bit to write a poem,
Then took the quickest shuttle home.

My mother went to Tennessee
To take a southern shopping spree.
She had such fun; I know it’s true.
I tagged along, went shopping too!

My mother went to Kankakee,
This time around, invited me.
We both wore filmy floaty clothes.
My mom has fun – and on she goes.

Funny Mothers Day Poem #4

I wrote the next funny mom's poem about a hundred years ago (give or take seventy-five years) when my kids were young and frustrated with the amount of time I spent on the phone. Please also note the ancient "portable" phone.

My Mother's On the Phone Again!
My mother's on the phone again.
It makes my mood grow sour,
Waiting for the talk to stop. . . 
I think it's been an hour.

My mother's on the phone again.
Will she get off? No way!
It's either Gramma or Aunt Kit. . . . 
I think it's been a day.

My mother's on the phone again.
I talk, but she won’t hear.
She said, "Just one more minute, Hon'." . . . 
I think it's been a year.

She hangs it up, gives me a hug.
We start to talk and then . . .
I hear a ring. It's not . . . 
Oh, no! She's on the phone again!
