Table Scraps

To be scolded
and sent
to eat under
the table, like a dog,
where four legs from
two sisters could kick
at you and drop
pieces of chewed up
meat down at you
was better than
being sent to eat
in the bathroom where
you were forced to sit
on the floor, facing
the toilet, it's lid,
your dinner table.
We learned not to complain.
