THE ONE GOOD THING ABOUT ME- 6/8/05

When I was young
It seemed to me
That my father was
Always pissed off
About something
Or another
And when he was
You could feel the
Disgust emanating
From him

The best way I could
See to escape the disgust
Was to avoid him
Altogether

This one time
He was in a particularly
Shitty mood
My older half-sister
Was the cause of it
And she kept on
Nagging him about
Something or another

When she finally
Went away
He looked at me and said,
“John, the one thing
Good about you is that
When I’m in a bad mood,
You leave me alone.”

After that, I never
Said much to my
Father ever again.
