Two and six make eight
But neither will get there now.

Boys found dead in suspicious circumstances
And the father's being held on murder charges –
But it's just another article in the paper,
Another death in the filler columns in the news,
Because the parents were estranged perhaps,
Or the wife had upset the guy and he's punishing her –
Just another dad dealing death and destruction
But no one makes an outcry and each death fades
Banished to the recycle bin until the next (it won't be long.)

And they wonder why father figures aren't a family necessity.
