Family Affair

Mother, father, sister, brother
Get along great; love one another
I hate to shatter your hopes and dreams
But things aren't always as they seem
What goes on behind closed doors?
Check the blood on once white floors
Brother and sister, hide in a closet-like a cage
Hiding, hiding, from Daddy's rage.
Mommy's screams pierce the air
But silence creeps in, decides to rest there
No signs of life in her are left
Eyes once alive, now laced with death
Sister and brother crouch back again
To no avail; Daddy soon finds them
No good coming from trying to fight
The children's screams pierce the night
In the silence, one shot sounds
The bodies of four lie cold on the ground
