I am shocked.
'By what? '
And the unconcerned ease,
My children express by today's violence.
I am more upset than they are.
'Perhaps you've been fantasized,
By an idealized romanticized life.
And they are exposed day and night,
By the reality of living it.'
How dare you speak to me that way?
I've raised my kids to be good kids.
'I'm sure you did!
I can tell how quick you are,
To defend their abilities to manipulate.'
