In the family of destitute
there is no quietude.
Cruel father humiliates derisively
his poor son
in order to rise his low self-esteem.
He tries to look like a hero
though he is zero.
With dirty hands unwashed from the streets
he takes bread and butter
and does not care about health of his children and wife.
Bad hygiene is a queen of his life.
