[😴] A LULLABY FOR MY DAUGHTERS (IN AN ELECTION YEAR)

After catching sound bites from the evening news. #Poetry #Parenthood #Politics
  1. As I lay you down to sleep
  2. Some dad advice is coming cheap:
  3. You may have heard a thing or two
  4. About the things you cannot do
  5. The words a girl should never say
  6. How you should live a certain way
  7. From people you've not met before
  8. (And if you did, you'd show the door)
  9. But rest assured—from me to you
  10. There's nothing that you have to prove
  11. To A N Y O N E
  12. Just be your best
  13. And love your life
  14. And get some rest.
