Shin Kicker


-By Linda Lee Lyberg

Shin kicker at three
A tiny slip of a girl
Her emotions ran free.

She took one look and whirled
Gave a solid kick to his knee
You’ll never be my father
You big old ugly beast!

  1. As a step-parent (and a parent as well) I was honored to have my (step-)daughter take me on as Dad. Raw, open, honest poem — universal in feeling. Nice!
