DON T COME CRYING TO ME

DON’T COME CRYING TO ME


Why  the hell not?  Yes, I’m talking to you !
Where else would you rather your child went crying to?
To a dodgy-looking school friend known 
As a probable midnite toker on his own?
To the  street gang anxious to expand
Membership of their  lonely losers  band ?
To old cousin  Zabqo, always willing, always free 
To sit a child on a too-friendly knee?
To an empty park bench all night through,
Afraid to come home to you?

No, this saying is one of the stupidest imaginable
Warnings  to  offer a  child in trouble. 
Hey,  kid, if things go wrong,  come crying to me  -
We’ll  be able to fix it, you’ll see.
