They give you Love

* Re-write of Philip Lark’s ‘They F*** you up’


They give you love,

Your mum and dad,

they try their best in all they do.

They fill your days with all they had

and add some extra just for you.

They keep in mind how they were loved

by their old folks back in the day.

They try to smooth things out that hurt

and teach you how to work and play.


Man hands on loving kindness to man –

Like the gift of a rose, all share the scent.

So take these lessons and learn them well

For one day you’ll be blessed with your own presents.
