    My father said nothing
    He did nothing
    He showed nothing
    He gave nothing
    Into the night without a peep
    Into the deep wallowing depths of murky water
    Shingles and jingles ring in my head
    Wiggles and giggles of summer time fun dead
    Off to the races without a horse or snout
    Off to the races without a doubt and clout
    Money we had not –home we had barely
    Peace, love tenderness –what’s that ?
    My father did nothing
    As he walked out the door
    As he unclaimed my momma
    And denied me
    My father did nothing has he packed up and left
    He said nothing as he started another life and family
    So now 25 years later only to discover
    My father did everything
    Yet he did it all
    Because he donated
    He gave –
    Yes he did it all for his sperm has made me
    He did it all has my mother’s egg received with delight
    He did nothing has my mother stood her ground
    Yes 25 years later only to discover
    My mother said goodbye –get out
    You do nothing –you have nothing
    My child needs stability
    If you want to see her provide for her
    If not goodbye …
    25 years later it was all something
    that came of a nothing moment in time
    that lasted and hour or less
    25 years ago it was nothing
    as I played with my toes only 851 days old
