Not-So-Happy Father’s Day

Jealousy pokes at me 

like a schoolyard bully,

as I scroll social media greetings 

professing undying love, 

to fathers here and above. 

 

I can’t help but feel cheated 

to not have a father’s love.

 

I cringe at the dissonance

between my children

and their father. 

 

How can fate be so cruel,

to curse multiple generations 

with dysfunctional fathers.
