My Dad Said 3

'Cynthia, Honey,

Life is not all tea and roses.

Sometimes, it's slops and skunk cabbage.'

 

And Mum would add a line,

'Deal with it.'

Brief and sharply observed - thanks.
As with the content
As with Mum and Dad
Life's about facing facts
And meeting good and bad!

My dad said

"you must believe the Bible son"........

To which my mum would blindly nod......

But it doesn't make sense?......

He was a preacher.......

And I was at university......

Question everything they taught me......

No wonder I get into so much strife......

I should just conform......

Then everyone would be happy.....

(except me).......

I like the way the messages balance each other. Colorful yet unforgiving.

Not keen on slops but that skunk cabbage sounds absolutely yummy!

He had a colourful way of making a point, my Dad did. Mum went straight for the jugular.
