The Monster She Fears

She lives in a single dimensional world
But watches 3D in the theater
She decides that she will protect herself
The next time he tries to beat her

He feels inadequate in the outside world
Emasculated by the masses
So to help him feel more like a man
He beats her every time she passes

Her mother had left them long ago
His wife had had enough
Physically and mentally abusing his child
Makes him feel real tough

He didn't like the way she dressed that night
And was going to hit her with his belt
The handgun she had hid in her purse
Would change the hand that she was dealt

The orange jump suit that she now wears
And will for twenty years
Is worth the price that she has to pay
For putting an end to the monster she fears
