Mom, can I ask you a question
that's been bothering me?
Why is Daddy always drunk~
at least he seems to be.
He don't kiss and hug me ~
Mom, does he care at all?
Sometimes he stays away for
days and don't even call.

Mom, can I ask you a question?
Why does Daddy hit you?
It makes me cry so hard Mom~
What did you do?
I wish that he would go away~
Leave us both alone.
Life would be better for us
with him gone!

Mom, can I ask you a question?
Why does Daddy hate us?
When he comes home from work
all he can do is fuss.
I wish he would stay at the bar
he goes to every nite~
Never come home again if all
he can do is fight!

Mom , can I ask you a question?
Why can't I be like girls at school?
They have Daddy's that hug them -
their Daddy's are so cool.
Mom, all I have is my teddy and
you to hold me tight~
Daddy just don't love us Mom~
he don't treat us right.....

Mom, can I ask you a question?.....

Linda, deeply emotional poem. You write so well of children's issues. Have you ever thought of putting a book together with these poems?
Reviewed by Lisa Hilbers 9/29/2002
Always great writes Linda. There are so many children out there that see and hear things, and experience things first hand, that are so tragically awful. And those parents don't realize, or maybe they just don't care. Thanks for the cry Linda, I think I needed it! Lisa
