The ‘World’s Best Dad’ t-shirt of foreboding

Telefonerende vader met huishoudschort geeft baby de fles. [1961].

 

The legend, World’s Best Dad, in caps,

around a tiny globe it far outweighs,

machine-stitched in outstanding text.

 

As sure as Ahab nailing to the mast

the Ecuadorian 8 doubloon, I bear

a surety to parenthood.

 

As fast as Ahab to my aim I’m tied

though joints give way and veins stand proud,

what I?
