She heard the loud noise

and it made her shiver

and almost jump out of skin,

he was home drunk again,

she wondered why she’d married this man,

this scum who didn’t know right from wrong,

her parents said she had ‘made her bed

and now must lie in it’

but they hadn’t a clue what was going on,

she was too ashamed to say

but she wished so badly to escape,

she cowered under the bedclothes

as his heavy footsteps approached the door

ready to take out his war on the world

using her as his punchbag.
