I Hate You, Dad, for What You Did
Music: Fugue in B Minor for Organ.By J.S. Bach. Sequenced by Jim Michmerhuizen.
I hate you, Dad, for what you didTo me when I was just a child,A helpless thing whom you could beatUntil the excess bile was drained.
To me, when I was just a child,You were God unmercifulUntil the excess bile was drainedAnd you were once again my friend.
You were God unmerciful,And I was Satan, Lord of Hell,Until you were again my friendAnd curdled my last drops of love.
And I was Satan, Lord of Hell,A helpless thing whom you could beatUntil you curdled all my love.I hate you, Dad, for what you did.
