Dad (Version 1)

What did I do wrong dad

for you to use that belt

my brown eyes match my legs now

bruised by whelps

So dad I smoked pot today

I knew you wouldn’t care

for years you told me I’m worthless

and that you didn’t care

dad I got drunk today

it made me feel real good

I forgot about your hate for me

yes, those few moments felt good

Dad I moved out today

I knew you wouldn't care

I’m 19 and I earn more than you

So I bought an apartment down stairs

Dad I smoke...and Dad...I drink

I wanted you to know

YOU taught me these things
