Just to Let You Know MAG

By MaryEllen, CT, Middletown, CT

Your butchering words
In the beginning
Went through my head
As a child who listens
To every word you say

Your constant sarcasm
Your words which
I thought were the truth
The never giving up

Just to let you know, Dad
Those butchering words
To me are now worthless
For I know now
It was only your sickness

Alright, now you're just being snarky and rude. I apologized, you seemed offended, don't have to snub me. Hope to hear from you again some other time, Namaste
