MY FATHER'S FAULT

How can I not always sleep In comfort Until the crow of the cock? How can I always sleep And be half-awake, yet Not caressed by the cane's crack? How can I always jump up From sleep so sweet Not reaching in pain for my bare back? But wait...! How can I not? Isn't she my father's fault?
