Battered cap sits on her head
Battered eyes stare straight ahead
Stare’s at the faces, shuffles her feet
stomach rumbles time to eat
opens paper, licks her lips
Battered fish and golden chips
Would like to go back home again
but fears the violence, remembers the pain
So, stays in this house, starts a new life
joins the club, battered wife.
