my hero, my mentor, my dad

you went to work and brought home your pay
to a wife that bitched you out nearly every day
for no reason that i could ever see
i wonder how it didn’t drive you crazy
you dedicated yourself to her and us kids
regardless of weather you felt “in the skids”
without fail you did your duty year in and year out
including a well deserved spanking or shout
at 4 little ingrates that drove our mom nuts
your rules were cut in stone, no “ifs, ands, or buts”
i always had hoped, though most never knew
that one day i would be just like you
and i tried, although, in some respects i failed
i got into drugs and even got myself jailed
as a father i dropped the ball quite hard
i guess, for me, it just wasn’t in the cards
and tho my life wasn’t easy, i’m certainly glad
that i had a hero like you for my dad

my hero, my mentor, my dad
