This is a great poem that every parent should watch and every guy about to date a girl for the first time! It’s funny, it’s sweet and I don’t think it’s meant to be taken entirely too seriously.
In this clip, the tattooed, scowling writer recites, “To the boys who may one day date my daughter: I have been waiting for you. Since before her birth, since before my spark* took hold and ignited the fire in her mother’s belly, I have been training to kill you.”
The message later became a moving tribute to the unbreakable love he has for his daughter and the general awe he feels about raising a human being.
It’s the universal message of a father’s love for his daughter that has caused the video of his presentation at the 2014 College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational last month to go viral.
