Daddy is hitting Mommy again,
She tries to run but he always wins.
The children run to their rooms and weep,
They'll cry until they fall asleep.
The pillows are wet with their tears,
Screams and nightmares reveal their fears.
He gives her flowers after the fight,
He says, "I'm sorry, it will be alright."
She hides the bruisesblack and blue,
He made by hitting her with his shoe.
He blames the beer when he gets mad,
He reminds her of her dad.
Then he will clean the house and wash all the dishes,
Treat her like a queen and grant all her wishes.
He only beats her every 90 days,
The other 89that's why she stays.
He is quiet and sometimes kind,
Except when alcohol is on his mind.
He takes them to church every Sunday,
They sing, laugh, and have a fun day.
They live in a big house on the hill,
He provides well and pays the bills.
She reads her Bible and prays each night,
Asking God to make her a better wife.
