Absent Fathers

A lot of us on Planet Earth Had absent fathers


(Absent fatherdom being maybe just a little bit epidemic in our world, hmmm?)


Some of us only wish our fathers had been absent


(some of those present fathers being … um … maybe just a little bit less than really stellar characters??)



Lotta lifelong damage

Down through the generations


From those men who weren’t there

(or ones we wish hadn’t bothered doing nobody much any favours

sticking around,

wreaking havoc)

:( :( :( :( :(



p.s. truly wonderful book about fathers, chockfull of insights, here
