Two Dresses

I knew from the very start
It would not be smooth sledding,
The two had bought the same dress
For wearing to my wedding.

Stepmother was adamant,
She would not buy another.
So the first one to give in
Had been my stubborn mother.

She purchased another dress,
Not quite as nice as she’d had,
But the way she was acting
She sure didn’t seem too mad!

So I asked her about it,
Things had become such a mess.
I offered to go with her
To return the other dress.

She said, “No, I’m keeping it
‘Cause it makes me look thinner.
Besides, I plan to wear it
To the rehearsal dinner!”
