News of a new baby

& no mention of the daddy

& I hope that’s not because

he is not around

has been & gone

& she is such a young woman

with no job, no home

this will be two lives

devastated

by what could be

should be

such a great event

her momma not able

to be there for her

the booze coming first

her own daddy dead

no winners here people

but we will go

smile

offer support

& hope that all works out

for the better

because we have to

& its not as if

my own generation

did not go the same way
