Sorry Dad

My Dad has probably guessed
By now
That I smoke
Not a lot
Between 5 and 10
A day
And sometimes
Even less

At rehearsal the other night
It struck me
That I was the only one still smoking


The health service professional
The one with the proper grown up job
The one with children
The one with responsibilities
The one who should know better

So Dad
This is my confession
And I am


I know how disappointed you will be
[If you’re not already]
