Shotgun Weddings

are still the best
at fumble bumble & over invest 
in the silly little lie to hide the truth 
that daughters pray in confession booths
for fathers to forgive their mortal sin
for slipping the condoms 
in the rubbish bin

Now she’s bound & has to stand 
before you, the people & the holy land
& promise to pretend, hand-in-hand
to forever obey the dead man’s command
