Selfish*
It was late afternoon
nobody even realized--until
it was too late.
what would happen on that
crisp summer's day
and all they would do is
look back and shake their
disapproving heads
reminded by such a tragedy.

Who knew
that such a person
would be so selfish
but--

Was it more selfish, Mother
than when you would leave him
all alone late at night--
while you were at some bar
flirting?

Was it more selfish, Father
than when you would come home
in a drunken stupor
beating him black and blue?

Throughout all of this
he persevered
even making honor roll
oh, you were so proud then
weren't you Mother?
*this is yet to be finished!
