Land of the single parent -------------------------------------------
A curse was apon the land.
Where's my mommy?
And where's my daddy
From sea to sea
One's on judge Judy
And the other one's in jail
"I know I just sent,
the check in the mail"
Is all that you hear.
All you want is their ear
And for them to take away all you're fears
The phrase produces bile.
Deep in my throat.
I'm that baby's momma!
Then why do you act like this,
Is this what's in store for me?
I copy what i see.
A curse,from sea to sea
And i don't
And my vision is not impared
You have to be around me for this,to become
All these feelings of comming undone.
Come in tremendous waves that knock me down.
On my face
On the land of the single parent
hhumm.. I am a single parent but I have never been on any talk show and I know who my babies daddy is .. but yes it does happen and there are many teen pregnancies and I think this was cute and creative.. be everyone has a different story.. but I think you meant this to be funny and it to me wasn't nit picking
I'm not really sure what to say about this. My mom raised me and my brother, and she did a wonderful job, but she got divorced. I do think it's hard, and it's not always the ideal environment for a child (Sometimes one parent is abusive or has some other reason to be unfit). I know you probably mean teenagers that go out and have kids because they think they want a baby only to find out it's not like having a Furby. I think the Judge Judy/ Springer thing is a bit exaggerated because most of the single parent families I know are pretty normal. I do think it's far too common, and I don't really think it should be done if it can be helped. I really think a lack of caring parental involvement is more of a curse though. To pick a teeny nit, coming only has one "m." I hope you're well, Amy
Apart from the obvious social comment, I think this is a very interesting piece.
A poem that makes the reader slow down and ponder on what's what is always worth reading, and this does that and more, with its multiple references to talk shows, with a cynical bite behind the reference.
Very nicely done, and out of the ordinary, which is always great to see. I'd be proud of this.
