Poem by Doniell Cushman
I heard you have a daughter, is it true?
I can't believe the luck of your draw,
What are you going to do?
She told me you invited her, of course, she didn't go
But she said you also invited K and her kids
And they went with the flow
You showed up at my house once, I was chatting in my yard
I still don't know why I hugged you
You fully destroyed my heart
Did he intimidate you as you stood staring at me?
Did his presence stop
They say you're in the Navy
What prompted that decision?
If they knew what I know, would they be in opposition?
Our paths might have been different
But you chose to strongarm
And I'm left behind wondering where's my funny farm?
