Two poor fellows
Last night, I saw you in my dream
The last thing I heard was your scream.
Nothing changed since you died,
Except, now there is no one on our side.
Dad still comes home imbibing a drink,
Beating us for nothing, without giving a think.
The alcohol is rottening his good brain,
And the hurts he gave, are still gonna pain.
Mom! With those bad words, he still abuses
Whenever we ask for food, he refuses.
For the rest of the family, we were a burden
With him, both of us have been abandoned.
Today, we crave for the love of your
For everyone else out there, is very sour.
Why did you leave us to suffer all this alone?
Needless to say, since you have already gone.
We both hug each other to cry over our fate,
And pray for not a whip, when he comes home late.
Come back maa, we have so much to say
We have been hungry for the whole day.
School has suspended us for not paying fees,
And we have so much to face, except all these.
We don't get water, we don't get light
All what happens is fight, fight and fight.
We don't get love, we don't get care
But we have none to whom, all this we share.
Oh mom! We cry, "Please come to us back!"
We only want to sleep on your lap.
We remember the day, you burnt yourself
And left us alone without any help.
The next time, I see you in dream, coming to me
Take both of us along to the world of thee.
