Michael Dawson (Football, Eight Bars Parents)
My father could never play quarterback,
He panics under pressure,
Seeing the worst cast of every scenario.
A big linebacker would come after him
And he would throw the ball into the air
With no purpose at all.
He doesn’t recognize the way his workers
Are leaving, they are becoming citizens,
They are starting their own businesses,
They are putting down roots
That don’t involve picking the stems
