She sings the blues solo.
Her ex is not even a background singer.
He is not there to play the sax behind
her croons.

His tunes are different.
He sings happy songs that deserve
to be muted. Because to his seeds,
he is fruitless.

The brother has four sons and two girls.
But he is not a father in their worlds.

His son Tommy is precious,
his daughter Daniel is a pearl.

Her baby mama blues
should have a movie and a soundtrack
That attacks the men who are not there.

Who do not care.

Who are not even aware that
It takes a man to raise a son too.

What's crazy, is that he grew up the same way.
His father was not there to play with him
And guide him through life's trials and tribulations.

In this nation, baby mama blues is a hit song.
It has gone platinum in broken homes nationwide.

What do we have for her tears?

What do we have for her tears?

She fears being lonely, lost, not liked,
and not being appreciated.
Has she told you brother
That she is devastated?

Has waited for years for you to come
and play purpose-filled father. But, you
Wont even bother. You wont even bother.

She sings the baby mama blues solo.

She sings 'em solo.

Awesome piece! I love how you expressed it through that metaphor of a blues band or a lonely solo....real unique, definitely felt that.
