One day I was walking through the Blick art supply store in the Chicago Loop, and as I was looking at supplies for origami, the phrase "origami mommy" stuck in my mind. Since mommies sometimes make origami for their kids, the phrase seemed apropos.
Here, for better or worse, is the poem:

She's an origami mommy in a satin dress.
When it comes to folding paper, well, she's the best!
She makes a paper animal that's sure to please.
She entertains the children with the greatest ease.
When she starts to work her magic with the paper fold,
well, you know that it is truly something to behold.
A bit silly, but hey --- one can't be serious all the time!
