Three daughters I have.
Can you imagine?
The plight of a single dad?
Driving away useless boyfriends
Sending to rehab for drug addictions
Giving sex education
Walking on egg shells
When period blood cause rebels.
Can you even fathom?
Of so-called 'fashion sense'?
The Eldest Regan
Always in high heels
Short, short mini skirts
Plastered with make-up
One boyfriend a week!
The Middle Goneril
A gone one that.
Always wears black
Black tops, black pants, black eye make-up, black lipstick
Heck! She even has black wallpaper and black curtains!
Like she is on a constant look out
For a bloody funeral!
The Last Cordelia
Actually don't know much about this one.
A recluse she is.
Holed up in that room
I have almost forgotten her face
What with the constant looking down and over grown bangs!
Sometimes I wonder what I should do
How can I get these brats married
When even getting them to go to school everyday is a damn battle field!
Reagan, I'd rather that one didn't even go!
Considering how her skirts seem to be decreasing in size as days go by
(Is that even possible?)
And then Goneril,
Just fits in with the misfits!
Worried about that one I am
With all the blending-in black
I would not be surprised if she quit school
And set out to do ninja training at this point!
Half the morning spent
In searching, simply searching
That child just disappears!
More like becomes thin air!
But they are not all bad.
Even if the worry might give me heart attacks!
Regan, a sports freak, despite her appearance
(Prejudice all around)
Won every race she competed in!
My national star!
Goneril, despite the emo stuff
Even if she looks like death is her boyfriend for life
Helps out at the shelter everyday.
A sight that one.
All that dark fabric surrounded by fluffy pups and cute kittens!
Can not talk properly.
Anti-social, socially awkward!
But. She can express herself.
Oh yes she can!
Give her some paint, and see wonder unravel before your very eyes.
My baby, she has so much to say
Has won every art competition she competed in!
My living paradoxes
It pains me more
To think one day, other men might take these wonders away from me.
This ladies and gentlemen.
Is the fun, happy, quirky, weird, hectic
King Lear household!
