Cycle

Bibs and cribs
pacifiers
bottles of warm milk
A place to play:
space, shelter

Toys
Decoys:
distractions from infractions
Potential troubles
avoided

Makeup, nice collared shirts
Hair gel and pretty purses  
Current styles accepted  
reads the fine print of society

"Always read the fine print"
Everyone will love you
The hand of dependence
Not a care where 
things come from

Powerful wheels and stainless steel
silverware
"That TV's too small"
Gourmet food
"Only the best for our children"

Garden tools and an expected inheritance
A trip to Hawaii 
Caribbean cruises
Fresh grandchildren waiting
for more hands

Certified nurses, regurgitated verses
from the old days
Pills and open house
Watching the sun set 
through the window
