I Had a Father

I say this about fathers

I had one

He was smart and funny

He loved my mother but

Had not much interest in children

My mother told me so when I was a kid

When I said, daddy is nicer to me than you are

She said, he’s not that terrific

He didn’t even want you.

So, maybe he wasn’t that terrific

Maybe he was a little tepid about me

Now that I think about it.
