Fathers without Fathers

Fathers without fathers as prisons continue to swell
To be a positive role to keep society from hell;
Kids need guidance from a father O so grand
To have him in a jail cell adds Kayos to this land.
There’s got to be more to punish
Than incarceration there to take
To add security to a family, a father’s duty is at stake.
Joan Baez sang it well to burn prisons to the ground
Living life from day to day is punishment I have found;
To take the moral road, and responsibility for our falls;
That’s a greater punishment than hiding behind four walls;
Fathers without fathers, to families they must return
To give their kids the love and hope, and responsibility to learn.
