Purple Dick

(That will get me some porn traffic)


I really get down in the winter.
The sun seems so far away this close to the solstice.
I miss the sun in my marrow.

The sun will come back.
Success will come back.

“I am as mean as ever”, I tell my kids. They say, “You are not mean dad”. They don’t know that I am referring to the median or average. I miss my children. I feel as if I failed them.

Justice has a price tag, you get as much as you can pay for in family court, just like all the other courts of my day.

I know, I know just shut up and send your money you self-pitying deadbeat dad.
“It don’t leave me enough to survive”, I say.
“Be a man and live up to your commitments”, they say.
“Manipulate and condescend me more”, I retort.

In the nativity set my eye always finds Joseph who don’t have a statue in the churchyard crying blood. He must have had the faith of ten thousand Pat Robertson types. Mary never sued for child support or manipulated God for 32% of his gross pre-tax income equating to 50% of his take home.

I know I know I am a privileged white man. I have oppressed women, kept slaves and killed natives for land. I don’t remember it, but I did, just ask everyone they would set you straight. I must have spent the bounty in my sleep last night.

I am the same color as Dick Cheney…dag-nabb-it!

So now I am a dick colored, self-pitying, deadbeat dad…mean as ever.

Did I mention winter gets me down?

I have more than enough sunshine here in Florida, if only I could send a boat load of rays your way. Hell, I don't even like chronic sunshine. I feel much better and happiest when the clouds are masking the heat of the sun and the weather is cold and the earth is dark. But then again I don't have someone taking half my wages. It just doesn't seem fair.

I hope the sun will return to your marrow and the color purple will fade.

With what you pay, you should have joint custody,, it's not fair, I understand your sad days. The courts don't respect the rights of good fathers like you b/c of the crappy ones like my Dad.
But don't ever compare yourself to that Satan guy.
