My mom knows how to make tamales,
Yours does not.
My mom knows how to shred the chicken with such grace
Yours does not.
My mom knows how to pound the masa with such pace
Yours does not.
My mom knows how to wrap the silky, and wet casings in place
Yours does not
My mom knows that I love tamales de mole with a smile on her face
Yours does not.
