The Ungrateful Lover - Poem by Hebert Logerie

When we first encountered, you did not know
The correct answer for one square one
Now you’re smart enough to dial nine one one
You called the police, so the sheriff could throw
Me in the dangerous streets, out of my house
So, you want to bring in a powerhouse.

How quickly you forgot the late nights
That I spent coaching, and teaching you the rights
And the wrongs. Now, you have a college degree
And a good paying job; I am no longer your baby
Oh! As they say, only cowards are thankful
But remember that the braves are never forgetful.
You can fly away like the Canadian geese
On the upcoming of spring. I no longer have the cheese
That your desires, that’s why you want to leave
Me alone with the kids, to put up a darn reave
Farewell, nobody knows what’s around the corner
Good bye, God will reward me for being a strong martyr.
