The yelling, screaming, and tears
over the smallest thing
because you couldn't lay off the beer
and therefore had no joy to bring

This from the man
I truly loved and respected
from you I never ran
I sat and watched my love rejected

I took your every word as law
and dutifully took restriction
or a slap to the jaw
while you continued your depiction

No trust between you and I
for crimes i never committed
It made no difference in your eye
and no other facts could be submitted

I say these things Dad
in hopes that you will hear
that things could've been better had
you just left alone the beer
