child support

heritage from a land,  
of “stand tall like a man”,  
your legacy and you  
a sure bet,
a mini you to love,  
identity a glove,  
offspring is a man’s  
greatest asset,  
spouting the pride,  
but when needed to guide,  
your self-centered nature  
sows regrets,  
no support,  
none in the mail,  
always a mad rail  
and tall tell to sell,  
“fuck support”  
is what you say,  
“you go to hell”  
“there ain’t no way”,  
“I’ll stay in a 6 by 8  
before I pay!”  
you fight and cringe  
like it’s a debt,  
and they could not  
case your bluff,  
now the prosecution  
date is set,  
and it’s about to  
get real rough..  
baby mama has cried,  
because you have denied,  
her and her  
utmost respects,  
now you will pay  
the largest they say,  
a financial noose  
around your neck..  
If you only knew  
you selfish fool,  
that a child is  
the greatest of gifts,  
you would do  
what it takes,  
for whatever it breaks,  
to wind up  
not becoming a stiff..  
you could fight hard,  
really hard,  
for at least joint custody,  
not to say at present day,  
you would be  
a better parent than she,  
but at least  
your seed would know,  
that daddy made a goal,  
to provide, guide  
and love them unconditionally..  
so i come to thee,  
cause the powers that be,  
force “me” to  
put 2 feet on the deck,  
as I look back and see,  
when nurturing the seed,  
the easy part..  
is writing a check.
