A Decision... - Poem by RIC BASTASA

for 31 years
he fucked her
she left her
parents who are
and very angry
at this
immoral stance

she gave her
two daughters
they sing and dance
for them
after dinners

now he has white
too young to have them
with all
the stress
and anguish

now they appear
for marriage
ripe time
to compensate the
lost years

the children to have
his family name
the school will be happy
and the community
would be appeased

she does not ask for
except his love
not even the money

they have had a house
that as you know
has now become a home
