take

hold my tongue
as she rants and raves
embarrasses and insults
the meek audience

I have been on my feet
for 16 hours
I need a shower
I bought you flowers

told to do tasks
I obey as I do
this foot does not always
wear the shoe

head bowed
I apologise unwilling
for no reason
for breathing

I rest as I shower
I hear screams over the tunes
someone is in trouble
for not doing what is expected

bitter spit I swallow
grit my rotting teeth
I am too young to
hold my tongue.
