What’s a Daughter to Do?

fb_img_1519742038075695910852.jpg

Blood, fur, sulphur, dirt/
Father is home from the hunt/
Be ready to skin/

Woodsmoke, rubber, sweat/
Father is home from a fire/
Be prepared to cook/

Wood, sawdust, oil, tar/
Father is home from his work/
Be ready to serve/

Fish, salt and fresh air/
Father is home from the sea/
Be prepared to scale/

Tobacco and beer/
Father is home for the day/
Be ready to hide/
