! Why!

why did you hit her?
what did she do?
why all the pain you put her though?
why all the suffering, hurt, and dispair?
Dad, can't you see you're not fighting fair

why did you shame her and treat her that way?
Dad are you listening or have nothing to say?
do you think of all the good times?
do you stay up and cry at night?
Dad why did you hit her when you know it was not RIGHT?
