as seasons change

he’s in jail
she’s filing for divorce
i fear she planned it like this

his little girl cries
more anxiety and fear
than a five year old should feel

the baby’s too little
to know what’s going on
but surely she’s afraid

our parents fear the worst
dad says he’ll be stabbed
mom says she’ll take the kids

it’s tragic
but they’ve been building
this tragedy their entire lives
