Sweet Pea: A Pro-Life Poem

As Father’s Day 2017 nears the end of it’s daylight hours – THIS father pays tribute to where it belongs. This is how a real father thinks and believes. Thank you Kae. ~ J.B.

With ungrateful

ears and eyes

we deem


hands and feet



unfit to rest

in the shade of our


cucumber patch lives…

unfit to nestle

we wrestle


blades and spades

and scalpels and knives

against green peas

who hang from umbilical vines,

against green peas who defy

our cucumber worlds where

our daydreams

bake like unswollen suns

and “freedoms” yank

lives right off the vine



and crisp brown

leaves are

fashionable and assorted

aborted babies

are pharmaceutically-correct


where green peas are trampled

under foot

and stale winds burn

cigarette holes into

unwanted pregnancies

and no one is allowed to

say much about it…


we believe in

peaceful places

where cucumber tombs keep

our lives


keep our lives


from ever having to call

a little one

sweet pea
