My grandfather beat my grandmother
My grandmother beat my father.
I thought my childhood normal
Until I saw my neighbour insert a straw
Into the frog’s bunghole and blow
My father beat my mother.
The best fuck I ever witnessed was perpetrated
By a bloke off the Street
He held a bottle of cider and kept on his socks.
Battered and abused She sold her story to the Newspapers.
My mother beat my sister
My sister beat my brother
All houses were open all cars free dog turds spoke
Biblical tales of age gob on the pavement diagnosed paranoia
Blood and snot entwined as spuds and gravy.
My brother beat me.
I never complained
Street Life is a game of dominoes
So I beat the dog.
