Black Sheep

On the shabby college mattress
My dear daughter
thus you were conceived
by then my testosterone-tight blood
threw up in spurts

How frequently we hang in joints
dancing like little robots
lavishly imbibing booze
till doc warned of premature death

How frequently I turned hostels
into Splashwaterworld
earning the label Black Sheep

I never intended that you be born
of a college misfit
But welcome, feel welcome
