What Is A Dad To Do ... A Poem For Michael

________________________________________________________________________________________________

What is a Dad to do
when every work day
is a hell hole of teenagers

though some call it a classroom

What is a Dad to do
when every home day
is a battlefield with three
gender opposites

though some call it family

What is a Dad to do?

1.
Squirrel away every bent
syllable and verb
until another poem
is born

though some call it esoterica

What is a Dad to do?

2.
Squirrel away every dollar
without budget collar
and at season's end 
of every hellhole
say Hello Europe
with three gender
opposites

He goes through hell
to give them a taste
of heaven

3.
and the comfort
to call him 
Terrible
