What kind of a life is a life
If it’s a life that is lived
Not like a life but like
A race against time against
Life, a race towards death is
Not a life that is a life
Escaping from life trying to
Do too much life and
Missing out on actual life.
Fathers are fighters
They’ll fight you till
They’re too old to fight
And then when you’re
A father yourself, you’ll
Also fight with those
Who you’re a father to,
Unless you’re me, you
Won’t father another
Sonofabitch to fight
With till you can’t
Fight anymore.
It’s sad because it
Would be nice to
Have a son to
Fight with
Because that’s
What I know
Fathers to do.
