I never realized
   At least not till today
How much of my behavior
   Is from the things you used to say

I make every effort
   To keep my intelligence in the light
I guess that comes from you telling me
   That I just wasn’t very bright

I have no sense of humor
   I’m pretty cut and dry
But you always said I was no good at jokes
   And that I shouldn’t even try

My stories you thought foolish
   My curiosity – inane
If anyone needed punished
   We both know who you would blame

It really is ironic
   And possibly quite sad
The day I needed most a hero
   Instead I had you for a dad

mark -

speaks to me.

i like the way you used such a simple childlike rhythm and rhyme for the boy's point of view - and yet such a serious and devastating message!
