Profiling 101

Child torn "innocently" sits in the 
corner of the room.
Mother angrily accuses the father of him 
burning down her house out of despite.
Father screams back you sure you don't need
the insurance money.
All along the child is smiling and holding in his
Never recognizing the child in the room at all.
Hate towards each other left him invisible.
"I did it " ,screamed the child, "Now will you pay
attention to me?"

    Oh yes, how much I like this poem. So many parents neglect to take notice of their children. If they did take notice they may learn heaps. An excellent write, my friend
