23 Fitzroy Road.........The Negotiator - Poem by DAVID GERARDINO

FLYING words,
threating fist,
a child takes a
step back, as this
father/monster, hits
his owm kid in the
I told you to do
better, he yells,
pick up your room,
take out the trash,
get better grades,
and get rid of these
fagget toys.
THE negotiator steps
in, plants a stop sign
on her sons door, and
watches this man, kill
every thing made from
love, but the house, not
even one scratch.
