Domestic Violence - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Burned to a crisp,
And blistered by it.

Some may not come to expect,
A direct announcement one might get.
From one sharing a relationship...
That time has come,
For the two of them to split!

Burned to a crisp,
And blistered by it.

Some signs are subtle.
Like an introduction made,
Of a new face someone has laid.
Under unusual circumstances.
When a spouse or a mate...
Is caught in broad daylight,
Making obvious advances.

Other signs are more direct!
Like catching a spouse or a mate,
Making arrangements for a date!
And that date shows up...
To immediately strip,
And both expose naked butts!

THIS is a 'clue'...
Someone has been fooling around,
On you!
And cares less what it is you do!

I would think this relationship...
Has lost something 'valued' too!
Wouldn't you?

Burned to a crisp,
And blistered by it.

Some may not come to expect,
A direct announcement one might get.
From one sharing a relationship...
That time has come,
For the two of them to split!
And to prove this...
Someone dares to incite,
Domestic violence!
