A Poem for Father’s Day

When I was younger, you used to give me piggy-back rides
Now, the only rides I get are from Six Flags

You said you’d always be there,
That you’d always care
But one day you left
And I was thrown into a world
Of other girls without fathers

Where we learn to depend on each other,
Not on a man
But when a man comes around
The welcome mats come out
While we’re bent over backwards
Just to keep you around

And just because he says he loves you
Doesn’t mean you have to love him back
Just like when you say you love him,
He just looks to your rack

There’s nothing you can say that can take me back
To the little girl who once sat in your lap
But there’s something I can do to make sure
That I don’t end up gyrating in a man’s lap

And it involves a purging
of
you
Pab
Gut-wrenching. As a daddy, that poem is going to give me nightmares.

Do you have a girl or a boy Pab?


Oooo, I did love your poem. It doesn't apply to me at all, but I loved it just the same. Nice contrast to the jolliness I experienced with my father yesterday when we went out to dinner.

. . . That's a good poem. . . GREAT actually. . . but really really sad. . . I expected it to be something like, "I love you dad, I'm glad you're here" but it's really a lot more original. . . and sad. . . you could publish that.

Glad I could be an example for you, Pab...
