at first I wanted to think it was an accident

that you didnt intend to harm your child

that a thing happened beyond your control

but now the police say you did it on purpose

you deliberately murdered your own child

I am a father too, I have had my days too

not once in all that time did it occur to me

to take out my frustration, pain or anger

on those who on me depend for their life

if this is true that you murdered your child

you are an unspeakably evil and cowardly bully
