Poetic(ish) Musings

listen son

sit down son
time to listen to some truth
get your head out of your arsehole
this talk is overdue
time for you to grow some balls
step up and be a man
time to be a father
help your boy to understand
that he is loved and he is precious
be the dad that he deserves
be a man that he looks up to
not a vessel for empty words
be remembered not by your absence
but for treasured moments shared
most of all be sure he remembers
when he needed a man
it was dad that was there
