Sherry's Tear

When the crime took place
He didn't think tears would flow
Just thought of himself.

The mother found out
And from that day on, tears flowed
Out of her tear ducts.

Domestic abuse
Has far flung horrid effects
Including tears shed.

Like on the panel
The mother wiped off a tear
When reliving it.

How can one person
Cause so much awful damage
With a blunt object.

That represents fun
In America to all
But, not on this day.

Tears in place of cheers
Tears instead of chilli dogs
He hit a home run.

It was the wrong kind
He could have played in big leagues
Instead he played her.

He got twelve short years
For this act, out of this crime
His victim got life ....⚰
