HEAVENLY FATHER: Room for Parting – Bloodline’s End

‘Tis a pity no pet was present 
to consume your corpse
A possible positive purpose
In actuality you parted alone
one year ago
to be found by thy own parent

Cars were your passion;
a total of sixty
One more than
the number of years you could live
I can’t think of anything more tiresome
than exactly everything
that rolls on wheels

But my hands are your hands
You were ugly where I am ugly
We are unbearable

This bloodline must end
Not with a bang or a whimper
Nor with a slash or a crash
but a pledge’
