He is an ugly bastard
And may they have ugly
Nose picking children.

He is also charming and funny
When talking to his children.

Both with the calloused hands of the Dude.
Both full timers

Causing her to hang her head.

Failing now to impress.

Now the author would
Slice and dice it all.

As now the cancer has returned
And the children
Scenting blood in the water
Circle snapping

Ganging up and snapping at
Her trailing
Umbilical innards.
