Poem: WHEN

When a mother lets go
Then your dad cedes control
And rod a back spares

When your class teacher balks
No longer finger finds faults
At sinister mores- no one cares

When supervisors cower
Wreaking ale beneath your breath
It gets worse-late you came-a whole hour

When the wife no more cares
A dangerous place indeed
For starters! Half way hence is hell

It is time you sit tight
On the railroad to hell
Ask a hand- you just can’t tell
Before you become Satan’s supper!
