Fathers without Fathers

Fathers without Fathers

By David Smith January 11, 2012

Inspired by CBC Radio Broadcast


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.
