Dad’s Day

My dad used Kris Kristofferson

As is way to get over mum

I use the legendary Roots

To pull the straps of my boots

On vinyl, through dad’s technics deck

Bought with his first pay cheque

Mitsubishi amp, Goodman’s speakers

Both got over respective partners

But she came back, they made me

And that is my mythology

And daddy’s always been there

Pat’s my hair, lets me see his care.

He ordered for me a stylus

That took three months the get to us

But worth it to hear the vinyl bumps

The way he’d listened to them once.

He quietly slips me some cash

Doesn’t push me on the hash

Always lets me borrow the car

I’m his wee poetry star.
