For my father, this is who he really is

Post by Volleygirl on Fri Nov 03, 2017 9:09 pm

This is for my father, and it is very fitting.

Bigger cars, bigger houses
Term insurance for your wife
Tuesday evenings with your drinking friends
And on Sunday you skip Mass
Because God is not high upon your list

Daddy hates mommy, mommy hates dad
Last night you shoulda heard the fight they
Gave my little brother another bad dream
He woke us all up with a terrible scream

Cheat on your taxes, don’t be a fool
What was that they said about the golden rule?
Never mind the rules, just play to win
And hate your neighbor for the shade of his skin
Stab em in the back is the name of the game

You've got air conditioned sinuses
And dark disturbing doubts about religion
While your secretary's tempting you
Your morals are exempting you from guilt and shame
Heaven knows you're not to blame

You better take care of business, dad and husband?
What's your plan?
Get down to business, If you can
Before it's too late and you throw your life away

Did you see your children growing up today
Did you see your daughter play her heart out at volleyball?
And did you hear your son sing in the school play?

Did you catch the fragrance of those roses in your garden?

Did the morning sunlight warm your soul
Brighten up your day?
Do you qualify to be alive
Or is the limit of your senses so as only to survive?

Spending counterfeit incentive
Wasting precious time and health
Placing value on the worthless
Disregarding priceless wealth
You can wheel and deal the best of them
Steal it from the rest of them
You know the score, their ethics are a bore

Alcoholic crutches
Prop you to the top
Where the smiles are all synthetic
And the ulcers never stop
When they take that final inventory

Yours will be the same sad story everywhere
No one will really care, no one more lonely than
you, this rich important man
Let's have your autograph, endorse your epitaph

I know you are upset Karissa, but aren't we being as bad of an example as our dad is by saying these things, and posting them where everyone can see them? I think family things should not be in public is all.

I totally can understand how upset you must be Karissa, but is this how you want to express it, out in the open like this? That is you right and I respect that, but please keep in mind that it may bring negative responses from family, or some people that read it.

We allow the right of expression here, life is not always sunshine and happiness. We have ups and downs, life can suck at times, we let people vent, and Karissa vented, agree or not, that is her right and we will respect her right.
