 He was a chubby boy who liked to bully me
I had a thing for bullies ; they only hit me one at a time
He lived further away than I was near the park
and near the apartments my mom liked to stay after dark

walking home one day I told him I liked milk
this delighted him and mom was gone
from the apartment where he stayed
and I sat with him on his bed

when his mom came home I jumped up
he pulled his pants on as his mother came
through the door I ran out and as I passed
she proclaimed to him you're not allowed 
to have any girls in the house!

going to visit my mom in the same apartments
near the park I went to visit before
I watched my mom get high with another woman
I wanted to leave even though I missed my mom

I told her I knew the kid downstairs, I wanted to leave
but mom's friend said don't go to him
he is a creep and a criminal, he preys on kids
my age, I had already seen him
these adults were much more scary
I tried to leave but with no success
I called mom out for doing meth
we fought on the carpet she pinned me down
she dragged me across the ground 
yelling I'll wash your mouth out with soap
but I did not give up hope
I smashed her against the counter
of the kitchen as she tried to shove me 
into the bathroom, ran out the door
and I didn't see the bully 
but just ran through the park back home.
