The child and the man
 
A child is broken
A child is twisted
A child is bent
A child is warped
 
A child cries for mercy
A child cries for pain
A child cries for food
A child cries for warmth
 
A child cries for Mother
A child cries for love
A child cries for pity
A child cries for Daddy
 
A mother does not hold
A mother does not kiss
A mother does not feed
A mother does not comfort
 
A Mother beats the child
A mother hits the child
A mother scolds the child
A mother punishes the child
 
A man is broken
A man is twisted
A man is bent
A man is warped
 
A man is crying for love
A man is crying from shame
A man is crying for disgust
A man is crying for pity
 
A mother is smiling
A mother is still hurting
A mother is still punishing
A mother is still twisting
 
A man is crying for pain
A man is crying for mercy
A man is crying for understanding
A man is crying for comfort
 
A man is screaming his pain
A man is howling his sorrow
A man is tearing his heart
A man is roaring his shame
 
A mother is laughing
A mother is gloating
A mother is drinking
A mother is dominating
 
A man screams NO MORE !
