A father declared, he has two.
To others, he has extra pair to spare.
In his death, they came on the air.
Many fathers attest to extra kids too.
That may seem like today's news.
But, to most, it is not all new.
To have no kids to spare is square.
To confirm the truth, I do not swear.
Remembrance of life lost brings tears.
So does publicity; it will earn some jeers.
The truth buries not a man's secrets.
But their DNA is in juices they secreted.
In tears and pain, they bear sneers and shame.
Many sorrowed now may think a feign.
But in death, they see nothing to deign.
Some living must claim their name.
