higher on the priority list

by J.J. Campbell

look at the funny
man on television

hoping no one
figures out how
hard he beats his
children when he
gets off the road

the broken woman
playing his wife

she's really just in
it for the health care

imagine her surprise
when she finds out
booze and hookers
were just a little
higher on the priority

she'd love to escape
but thinks better of it

figures the abuse is
better than her and
the kids living under
a bridge

especially with the
winter chill looming
in the air

holiday dysfunction
right around the corner
