On A Bus

Three little girls
sitting in the back seat
Daddy leaving home again
Mummy feeling mixed about it
The girls too
But he was too much trouble
when he was home
Drinking
Driving them while drinking
Spending money no one had
just to have a drink or two
with his friends
instead
Waiting on a bus to show up
All of them were waiting
It was cold and rainy
They had all forgotten
how to think
things would ever change
Goodbye Daddy
Daddy did not look back.
