Continuance

Purple, blue and green
Bruises not dreams
You barely see
Call the police

Causing you pain
Your black blood stains
You’ve seen his gun
Call nine one one

You love him still
One day he’ll kill
Son got the gun
Shot dad for fun

  2. Shot dad for fun?

    Not because dad was making son black, blue and green and because son knew dad had it in him to kill?

    Thank you so much for your comment on my offering. You made my day. Heck, you made my week and month too. 😉

    • PattiKen, yours really took top honors. You danced like a butterfly and stung like a bee, where I went right for the groin. Yours was much more classier! smiles..
