Warning: The author has noted that this contains the highest level of violence.
Spilling booze
lit my daddy's short fuse.
It's hard to tell just what he might do.

Rage and hate.
Flying fists, breaking plates.
I hide, worried about all our fates.

Mama's done.
She yells to me to run.
This time she'll protect us with his gun.
