Hello Dad – Written Saturday 28th June 2008 (Aged 33)

Hello Dad

hello dad,
you decided to come back
of all the things you lack
like a book of facts
do you remember the attack ?
when my belief was smashed
and childhood was put on the rack

hello dad,
you have decided to come back
like the sewers with their rats
and now you see all i have
of the things that you could never match
do you think i was not able too catch
or for the words to find a patch
did you never want to become attached?

James Garratt – Saturday 28th June 2008
