Daddy’s Abortion

Daddy Had An Abortion

Such a story of dejection; one well known

A tale of woe

A web of destruction, tangled and old

An open secret; we hope no one knows

Mummy got pregnant; the whole neighborhood cooed;

Mummy had a baby, man! How cool,

Couldn’t wait for baby to grow, begin school

Till baby grew and didn’t know who was who

See the problem was daddy wasn’t really ready

Married mum and got her pregnant – what a tragedy

Liked the idea of ‘husband’, uncomfortable with ‘daddy’

So he skipped town, leaving behind a family

What do you think happened to baby?

Grew up without guidance, quickly became a screw up

Misbehaving, gambling messing the neighborhood up

Came home drunk one night; started a fight

But the mai guard’s arrow didn’t miss it’s flight

Sisi got pregnant – this was a tragedy

Cos Sisi and the coming father weren’t married

He wanted to pay for the abortion; she turned down the offer

He wasn’t ready to be daddy; so he did the job for her,

Beat the baby out of her

Daddy had an abortion – oh how ridiculous

Listen while I spin a tale of loss

Sure they were married; sure he wanted a baby

But he couldn’t ignore when the streets came calling

At least he could have put the phone on silent,

Waited a bit to play the role of proud parent

But he hurried out – couldn’t wait to play

Left his daughter amongst wolves at bay

She grew up beautiful without, all ugly inside;

Learnt of love from men who couldn’t see past her thighs

Should have had a father to open her eyes

But daddy’s abortion was effective; she was dead.

Life sighed

Daddy had an abortion; this is the last

Listen while I spill the tale of lives long past

Daddy wasn’t there – didn’t really like kids

Only time he was – it was through his belt and fists

Made his kids hate each other; made them compete,

Mother tried so hard to make them complete

Daddy had a twin in one of his kids

The one most like him, the one he liked the least

Took another wife to spite his wife

Mummy ignored that, took it in stride

Imagine that, as a man with pride! Frustrating, right?

Guess what daddy did? He robbed mummy of her life

Daddy’s twin was angry and hurt silently waiting

Promised to avenge mummy; such hating

Mummy prayed from the grave; God gave ear

He said ‘what I give I take; do not fear’

You need to be better than your father; listen here

If you really loved your mother you would learn to care.”

So thus ends the story; dry your tears

I hope it’s not for nothing; hope you learnt something

Hope you understand the truth; no lies

Daddies have abortions too; but God can give life.

Ask.
