A Boomers Daughter - part two

When she was little she thought
her daddy was a secret agent
three tours in vietnam - agent orange
and a reconstructed  right foot
had left him with a bit of baggage
and recurring flash-backs

Quality time with dad
meant laying under their car all day
watching for the VC
Or helping to booby trap the house
in camoflauge face paint.

Her mom became a Jehovahs Witness
and set out for new mexico
armed with a divorce decree
and watchtower magazines
looking for aliens to save
because SHE had a message

Dad opened a night club
and married one of the dancers.
She grew up on fast food
in a dirty house filled with drama
and exotic lingerie.

At sixteen she wanted a car
and wondered how she might get it.
Her friends worked after school
slinging burgers & fries for chump change

She knew she would never do that.
She had eaten too much of it growing up
So she looked to her dad & stepmom
and pulled a page out of their book

Her idea was simple and ingenious.
A calendar with a sexual fetish theme
Local girls and A high school camera
borrowed from her photography class

The War Bunker Babies Calendar was born
It went like hotcakes.
She made a buttload of money
got expelled from school
bought a car with a cool stereo
and enough Aqua-net & black eye-liner
to see her well into the next century.
She traded 2 of the calendars for a
passing grade in her photography
and history classes
and made a mental note to herself to
choose male teachers when possible.

College was just around the corner
and she had plans.
the story continues...

Fiction with a bit of autobiography or vice versa? :)

its all true with a few embellishments.  I took poetic license.
