My friend wanted to hold you close to his chest,

Get an i-spy camera snap you both in embrace.

Yesterday he spoke to your father at a street corner,

Told him he escorted your mother to work that morning.

Your sister seemed happy to see him dancing on camera.

He’s a fool who isn’t deserving any of your love;

That’s if your mother’s friends are to be believed,

Like it weren’t them who had you grow without a father.

I laughed after he told me he’d marry you.

That your mother expelled him from your family dinner.

After hearing he is your sister’s ex boyfriend she didn’t know.

He is to his own guilt admission, not well educated;

To can have you or your sister lying next to him,

Raise the four kids he has with three different women.
