Mrs. Parks (that’s Rosa’s mom)
When Rosa, back her bus ride from
Told her that she wouldn’t rise
On Caucasian demand
Found it hard to understand
Actions flagrantly unwise:
The girl was out of hand!
Now that all the neighbors knew
Churchly greetings would be few
Police cast a jaundiced eye
On any future business try
Innocently to purview —
There’s just no comprehending why
Kids do the things they do!
