You Starved Me Out at University
You starved me out at university
While officially claiming me your son
Prevented from claiming true poverty
I'd have been better off as an orphan
Two twenties you palmed at graduation
Were the greatest insult you proffered
Passed to me amidst adoration
Of my mother's fading beauty afar
You'd promised in court to fund our college
In lieu of paying real child support
Your reneging on this was an outrage
In light of how your pittance left her short
    The S.P.C.A. would have brought charges
    Had we been dogs living on your largess.
