    Lost sons and empty harbors
    Haunted lullabies...
    Telling tale of distant fathers
    Mama's alibis
    Deadbeat dads,
    That forgot to bat
    Shutout, love enshrined
    Hall of shame,
    The angry crowd
    Drama of the times
    Daddy packing,
    Mother slacking...
    No integrity,
    On the whole,
    Wisper to the world
    Slaves are born in holds
    A father dies without a glance
    Entombed with I-L-O-V-E-Y-O-U
    Mister... YOU!
    Once the child;
    Your children,
    Need ~
    You too...

    The last lines got me thinking of "Family Portrait" by Pink.
    I think soemtimes people are too selfish and forget how their actions affect others.
    Thoughtful piece.
