Sins of the father by R.C. Thaka

R.C. Thaka | May 10th, 2018 | poetry | No Comments

Poem

the sins of the father will be visited upon the son
but what say you of the sins of the son?
will they be taxed onto the acts of the previously damned?
or is his debt on a separate payment plan?

if the sins of the father are to be visited upon the son
then what of the man who fathers only women?
will that credit be carried over?
will that price accrue interest?
will that fee be limited?
or will the balance be forgiven?

why are the sins of the father visited upon the son?
are his confessions unworthy?
are his Hail Marys in the red?
are his good deeds not liquid?
or is the son simply collateral protection?
