RESPECT

When I grew up I was taught to treat my elders with respect,
Well then something has gone badly wrong,
How could they sleep at night having ambushed her in the room,
Shouted her down, belittling and humilated her,
taking her back to those days of the mission and being bashed by her husband.
It makes me sick when I see her cry,
Today she told me she wants to die.
