A Boozer's Blunder (3) (Drowned In Shallow Water) - Poem by U Win Kyi
A 4-month-old baby girl was taken for a bath,
Handling such a small baby with care was a must
The grandmother noticed that in the bathroom so silent.
So worried, into the room, she hurriedly went.
To her horror, in the bathtub,
the baby girl sunk,
her father fell asleep, absolutely drunk.
His blood alcohol level was so high.
When woke up, all he could do was 'cry'.
His dearest daughter,
drowned in 19 cm depth of shallow water.
It was a true story of a boozer.
Under alcohol influence, blunder made one after another.
His dream of raising her totally shattered.
He was the killer of his own daughter.
