More than the living rooms
More than the bedrooms
It is the breakfast table
That sees all the action.
It’s the centre-stage of our lives.
Where children sit without guards;
Where fathers read the newspaper
At leisure, before the worries of the day
It is where mothers do best
What we love them for:
Give us our favourite meals
With love, before the rush of the day
Catches up with them.
The breakfast table is
where children see their parent as individuals,
And parents see their brats as young adults.
Definitely, the very centre of life.
