FanFoFeb : Silence!


And finally, thankfully the lights went out.

Silence no more abuse nothing left to shout.

Blessed relief, Oh! thank God no more pain

She tried to fight for life  but she slipped away all the same.


Slavering he swayed above  her body

Bitch,  he muttered, looking at  his hands, dirty and bloody.

Stepping over her he gave her side a  kick, it was then the baby started to cry

No, not again he screamed, shut up, shut up you little shit, die.


He’d picked the baby up  and smashed its’ head against  the floor

Swung the baby  round  shaking it, it stopped screaming  as it’s head met the door.

He left it lying there by her side … bloody  thing it would of been okay  if it had not cried

He went over to the table and drank from the bottle , unaware and uncaring that his wife and baby had died.


He is slumped across the table

Snoring , drunk to wake unable

What a greeting for a child from school

Mum and baby sister dead and bloodied, too cruel.


She was sick, she can’t  believe her eyes

Frozen to the spot  she cannot move however hard  she tries

The evil drunk spoiler of her miserable life

Tired she is of him, sick again she reaches for a knife.


She puts  the knife in his chest. No time to stop and think.

He hardly makes a move  anesthetized by the drink.

Her senses tell her what to do so she picks up the phone.

Ambulance please, Dad has hurt my  Mum, I have just got  home .


The Police came with the Ambulance  they had been there before.

They knew that this was bad as they stepped inside the door.

The girl in the corner dead baby in her arms  dry eyed and lost

Mother a mass of bruises she did her best, but at such an awful cost.


The man was D.O.A . The paramedics could do nothing for him

The girl was so distraught they had to prize the baby from her arms so thin.

Poor little soul was what the nurses had to say

Her Mum and Dad  and sister all of them snatched away.


The relatives room was quite  apart from the little girls sobs

The social workers said they hate these type of jobs.

What ever could they do to help a little soul

Too young to understand ,  withdrawn and swallowed whole.
