IS DAD GOD?

Is Dad God?

www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [Is Dad God?]

He rules us – a fiery beast
Supreme! Unquestionable fist
He says he knows what’s best for all
Through winter, summer, spring and fall

To him we’re enslaved appliances
To rule and stomp to compliance
Our welfare his least agenda
For his, we must run helter, skelter

His broad shoulder is no shelter
They do not hug, care or pamper
They house the force for swinging whips
And sit upon the kicking hips

The plundering shark of the ocean
Poison ivy body lotion
Riding on intimidation
No soul, no heart, no compassion

Sadist monster, dream killing mists
Inside his heart, insanity feasts
Father’s story told around me
Sound strange to hear, stings like a bee

Honour, respect, by love, we earn
Watch beasts, fishes or fowls and learn
The gods, for love, meddle with men
A frail chicken turns brooding hen

No grievances my heart will bear
Nor will my eyes shed single tear
For soulless beast or puny god
Their death softens injustice’s rod

Let no man bring low enough
To hate his sorry self thereof
With selfless love, bear crushing weight
Stand strong, be not consumed in hate

Tried so hard but could not love you
Indifference is the best I can do
Bless my mother who braved the storms
But will not dance to tempest drums

Will no longer, for your change, wait
Redeem yourself before it’s late
When it remains the only tempting fate
By then it would be discovered bait
