"M" is for the many ways to raise offspring.
"O" comes after "N", which stands for nurturing.
"T" is for the teaching of the progeny.
"H" is for that quaint idea, homogeny.
"E" is for effusive maternal affection.
"R" is for the relationship of primal connection.
"H" is for hierarchical family.
"O" is for the Oedipal complexity.
"O" is for the obsolete stereotypes.
"D" is for, well, diapers and some baby wipes.

Put them all together, they spell "Motherhood,"
A word that conveys all the associations of the abstract idea of maternity,
And in addition is sometimes used metanymically to mean "good."
