Dad (For Father’s Day)

Cry-baby

A hero unsung in lip
Unsuckled in breast
Unpreserved in womb
The winner of loaves
In the currency of dough
Feeding love-crumbs
An unconditional donor
Of what is immeasurable
In sweat-dew’s worth
Despite the condition
Of being always
Anatomically-unbridged
The perennial biological pariah
Who will linger in silence and shade
As love’s messiah
