I hear the screams,

I hear the pain,

I want to help…

But I refrain.

It's all too common,

It's happened before,

I hear him smashing,

On the front door.

Banishment from the house,

What cause this time?

Why does he always

Cross the line?

He can't behave,

Won't see he's wrong

So further punishment

Doesn't have to wait long.
