Response to Graham Nunn on Fatherhood Day 20

Tired by a Titan

Daddy you are tired

by that belly-button stumped

baby boy

 

Daddy you are tired

by peeling skin, milk spotty

baby boy

 

Daddy you are tired

by that lip-pursed, ready nurse

baby boy

 

Daddy you are tired

by that milk-mad, frenzied

baby boy

 

Daddy you are tired

by that stop and startled

baby boy

 

Daddy you are tired

by that slimy poo cycling

baby boy

 

Daddy you are devotee

enslaved and love-chained

to that baby boy.
