IS FATHER REALLY A COWARD?

Mother seems to be confused

When she and father argue,

And words cannot fully convey the hate,

They trade blows

When he has been pushed to the wall;

For her utterings can provoke a mad man,

He strikes her,

She calls him a coward.

When he refuses to take the bait,

Decides to be reasonable,

Not quick to anger

And he doesn’t strike her,

She calls him a coward.

When I err and need the rod

And father is supposed to deliver the strokes,

If he decides against it

She calls him a coward,

A weakling who cannot handle his children.

If he strikes me more than she deems necessary,

She calls him a coward,

A monster who wants to kill her children.

Father doesn’t have a job

Mother has become the breadwinner

She has resorted to name-calling

What she doesn’t know,

He’s scared to put himself out there;

Scared of rejection

But mother doesn’t want to listen

She calls him a coward
