Carmen Miranda
Daddy's dead.
And I didn't kill him, like Sylvia said.
And I cried
on the day he died.
I don't know why.

If Mum reads this,
who will she miss?
Will it be me?
Or our absentee?
Either way, she won't cry...

    I really love your blog and your poetry. I see that someone else thought the same thing I did and nominated you for a Liebster Award. I would understand if you didn’t want to go through it again but if you are so inclined here is the link
    Keep up the good work!
