    Health-wise it is good to go for a walk at night, but it is not always pleasant to peep through the windows of houses on the way. It also brings to fore glimpses of women being tortured by their drunk husbands. Small poem with a purpose. (Report) Reply

    I've lived for years in a slum neighbourhood infested with drunks. I often go for long walks late at night.
    In the city you can't see the stars. I've never looked in a window and seen a drunk chasing his wife about.
    It just doesn't happen.

    just because you've never seen it where you lived doesn't mean it doesn't happen. i've lived, quite literally, in the forest my whole life and i've never seen a bear so they just don't exist.

    i don't think Mr. Buk has issues... i think the subjects (people) in the poem are the ones with the issues... after reading it again and again, i comprehend that Mr. Buk is ripping the abusive husbands up. I think he does a fairly good job of it. I also found the way he used the structure tired housewives and fight off to display a respect of her the CEO of home affairs. Thanks for this Charles, we need people who stand up for these issues, btw, have you met an angel yet? If you do will you ask them to dropp a wallnut on Robert Quilter's head please? *kidding* Al.
