A Girl's PainBy Nancy CassiaPoetryA Girl's PainMy fellow people I have seen wonders in realityFood Education and ClothingIs it why I was brought into this world? My mother is a drunkard My father is another oneThey keep on drinking until the last sipWhen they get changaa,welcomeLocal beerwelcomeAnd why not other expensive beers as well?Late at midnight here mother comesstaggering, not knowing what is happening around usShe would ask,why haven’t you gone to bed?But mum do we go to bed with an empty belly Oh! Oh! Oh!Here father comes rolling,like an angry lionWho can bear this man We all creeped into our beds till morning In the morning we have to wonder,“where do we get breakfast from?”We only take a cup of cold water and take our heels to schooljust to be seen by the other pupils like pictures Our hair is so shaggyand protruding bellies Dad have you decided to abandon us like orphans,Mum how soon have you forgotten?
