Paternity is a Legal Fiction

This just popped out on the bus - scribbled it down and then typed it up at work and emailed it home

no real need to change anything i thought so i left it as it was.

Lo! Into the slough of despair
The family fell after the death
Of the mother.

Some fell into blinding rage
Some fell into drug usage
Others bathed in self loathing

Dogs bay at ships
With tattered sails

For what is the family?
No more than the mother.
