Fatherless

Born as a mucky murky mistake
Lived as though tripped over
A piece of lingered bad conscience
A filthy un-cleanable mess
Unfathered by this soldier
Leeched in swamps at Vietnam
This little girl un-armed
Of weapons or chemical spray
Kept this father away
He left me there to fight a war
Of a schizophrenic mum to love
To raise his other little girl
Another insupportable one
Only in need of recognition
And not alot of fuss
All he ever had to do
Was share a half of us
