This is a true story.

My Grandpa

My grandpa (such a philanderer!)
with children littered the countryside.
And so my dad moved far away:
"Must find an unrelated bride."

I bear within the deep disgrace
of Grandpa's awful life of sin,
but think it's neat that there's a place
where every stranger is my kin.

Well this could go both ways, of serious and comical. I'm in between, well written though.

This is also true:
I know a gent who sired many
So then his son could not woo any
In his frustration he cried to Ma
She said, " Don't worry, he's not your Pa!"
