In the Name of the Father

The sweet embrace

linked with parental care

dragged over a sinister line.

No blood relation,

or matrimonial link,

but rather a secure shoulder

for a stupid girl –

A father figured

from another's begetter.

A kind welcome

deformed in tender touches.

A hug exploited

to clutch and trap and use.

Lips forced against lips,

the innocent flesh tainted,

a carnal pulse befriended.

The daughter by name,

but a girl none the less.

Manipulation of mind,

as strong arms encase, hold:

Question the role of father.

Tears of frustrated confusion

wash the dirtied darling.

Controversial attachment

to that favourite grown girl.

All in the name

of the father.
