God duty – April 7

4.7.2016

Why did you take

my daddy away,

he asked me

 

I didn’t, I told him

but with my God

collar on I was

the one who

 

had to tell him

that his daddy

was gone

 

after he’d blown

his head off with

a shotgun.

 

 

God keeps us safe

my daughter said

with her perfect reasoning

 

you’re my daddy

you keep us safe

you’re God.

 

No I said, taking my

collar off, we have

a deal going

 

God keeps your mom

and me safe and

we keep you safe.

 

at least I pray

that’s the way

it is.
