The Grandfather I Never Knew

In a Plymouth six was a bag of tricks
and a veteran of a foreign war.

He stopped me cold and began to scold
me for having dirty hair.

He called me a draft dodger he called me a tink
“Get in the shower you fucking stink!”

Before he left he spit in my eye, I tried not to cry
and remember, that it was a different time back then.

PD

stumpedwise.
