The Eternal Paternal

The Eternal Paternal

 

Yes, dear daughter, my
little bleating lamb,
what is it this time?

 

Evening and morning,
you importune me,
at times convenient
and inopportune.

 

Once it was lollies, dollies,
to come to tea
with fairy cups and doilies.

 

But now it’s for a little cash,
for a quick dash to the
shops and coffee with
a friend.
May it never end.
