Drinking for comfort, f*****g for food

Drinking for comfort, f*****g for food

A Poem by Gee
"

A take on a single mums plight

"
Four different fathers
a monochrome brood
drinking for comfort
and f*****g for food.
Best before blow jobs
use before shags
payment in polythene
half empty bags.
Laying and lying
but only to self
shop soiled, outdated,
left on the shelf

"a monochrome brood " ...the contrast is striking!
"left on the shelf " ... is unforgettable ... well said Gee ... you remind me how easy to forego compassion and empathy in place of judgement ... the "mothers" you speak of are perhaps beyond help .. i picture those who are long on the streets ..have taken a helping hand many times only to recoil from lasting effects ...but the children suffer so much more (in my opinion) as innocent ...your poem is street smart ..very hard hitting .. i read some of your reactions to reviews and understand this comes from first hand knowledge and experience ... my heart, with prayers, to you my friend ... kudos to your fire ..which has intensified of late ;) peace and love

Hey, sentiment well and truly reciprocated. All Good Things, N
Well-written and tough, you describe many in our society. Shouldn't tell stories, but one or two might be my kin. As I have seen, either sex can sink into such a gutter. Some can be pulled from there, but others not.

Wow - move over John Cooper Clarke - there's a new social conscience in town with six guns of hard-hitting phrases and smokin' metaphors.

When I taught in the inner city I knew these people. And young one's of both sexes as well.
And we call ourselves an enlightened society.
A social comment writ large and well crafted here.

doing what we need to to survive and take care of our children...the judgmental will boo-hoo it...taboo it, but those who really get it...will hush and just understand instead of put labels on people.
