-the Mechanical Gene- - Poem by darkpuppet loveless

As a kid her father had said,
“You’re going to learn how to work on cars”
The girl and her brother were excited,
“But girls can’t learn how! ” her brother protested,
“This is a skill I want the both of you to pass down”
Years later the father was old and his children as well
“You should take Auto-shop” my nana tells me,
I never ask for her reason because I have my own,
My great-grandfather would be proud if I kept up
The tradition, And I agree, I would be honored
To uphold it, just for a chance to show him,
“Look at me, are you proud? ” and I hope he will be
I’m never giving up.
