Parasite - Cuckoo & warbler or dead beat parents

I thought I was done for the day, but had to mention this scientific fact.

There is a bird that purposely lays its eggs in other birds nest, so that they could be cared for.  They are released from all parental responsibilities.  The cuckoo bird lays its eggs in the warblers nest.  The picture shows the warbler feeding the cuckoo.  Clearly not its baby, but never the less taking care of it.

This relationship has got to sound familiar.  Mothers or fathers what do you think of absentee parents that don't take care of their children, don't pay child support, don't call, don't try to have any connection with their children?  Or better yet, what about the parents who totally abandon their children?

Here's one of the poems I wrote a while ago about that:  He Looks Like A Man
