The old man requested it more than a few times,
in conversations with him,
Those last few years he hung around
pissing and shiting himself complaining
about, aides sent by catholic charities
going through the drawers looking for money, but.
Who really wants to talk about burning up their old man
over Sunday dinner once they become an adult,
Even though at fifteen or sixteen my bother or I
would've gladly thrown a gallon of gasoline on him then
fling a match his way.
Getting a jump-started on his cremation request
after one of his famous,
‘This is for your own good beatings'.
