To My Father On His Birthday
by David Maurice
My Father is so predictable
I always know where he's at
The man never changes his clothes either,
It's the same suit every day
Yes that's right, all weekend too.
Can you imagine your father
mowing the lawn in his Sunday best?
Doesn't matter though,
my dad never mows
Why you ask?
Author's Note: Life never pulls her punches.

Wow. Not what I was expecting, but still, powerful. Nicely done.

A unique take on death. I like how you've used his suit in this. This does punch. Thanks.
