Case Dismissed

In all my years I've never been So sad to see the likes of him My little boy, now 6 feet tall Smokes pot and drinks And that ain't all... His anger lurks and waits for me To raise my voice, to set it free. I beg and plead Please stop please think... A broken glass lands in the sink. The front door slams, he's gone again. Tonight I'll drive til dawn and then I'll pray and cry for his return Go back to bed, no lesson learned. Extorted cash, no money earned. His life is going down the drain My guilt enables endless pain. We go to court just like before The "L A Lawyer" gets one more. Case dismissed. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- © 2001 Karen Feist
