A stern and wagging finger

A voice filled with rage

The child cowers in fear

Did you not think of her age?

Was what she did so wrong

That it required you to yell?

And was it necessary to say

You’d be unleashing fire and hell?

A kid. She’s just a kid

Crying and looking so small

What did you see

Standing over her, so tall?

The message you have sent

She got it, I would bet

Be proud that you scared her

Parental responsibilities, not met
