”I wish you weren’t my Dad” he said
As I manoeuvred him to bed
His words had got inside my head

The Rock, Roald Dahl or Captain Hook?
Some other hero from a book?
That kindly man whose hand you shook
Or grandfather whose sweet you took?

A dentist, doc or maybe Pete
The jolly chap from down the street?
Or someone else I’m yet to meet
Whose dad-credentials can’t be beat

The options spewed till I was hoarse
But still no signs of child remorse
And then he turned and said with force
”You silly man,
