FFF55. Weekend Father

“Please sit down.”
“No. Mummy doesn’t make us sit down.”
“I’m sure she does. Sit down!”
“Don’t have to.”
“If you don’t sit down you won’t get ice cream.”
“You’re mean.”
“People are getting annoyed with you.”
”Don’t care what people think. Mummy wouldn’t care about people.”
“Mummy never cared about anything much. Including us.”

55 words for the G-Man. Based on something I saw a year or so ago.

Obviously Mummy is no longer there. :(

Mummy left. Couldn't take the kids that she raised anymore.

I'm not liking Mummy very much.

This is a great verse. In so few words you've described the dilemma of the broken home. So many kids are stretched.

A child with a mind of her own!

Thought I'd commented on this earlier but obviously not - have to say I found it heart-breaking in the likeliness of it happening. (Sorry - clumsily-put but the right words eluding me)
