FATHER

Father
Father that is what my dad was
Father that is what you are not
Your sons had no one as a role-model
What kind of father you claim to be
What kind of example have you set
Your daughters stay far away from you
Even for them you were not there
Wife after wife had no help from you
So the children suffer for want of a dad
You have no shame no conscience
Your ability to care to feel empathy
Is gone down the sewer drain
You are a poor excuse of a father
Hence a poor excuse of a MAN
