Bullied in school
Abused at home
In this plight, she was immured
With no one to confide in
no one to hide behind
she was her own saviour
Only one thing to do now
Commmit the ultimate sin
That was her only cure.
She found a rope
She found a stool
She found some liqueur
She gathered enough courage
To finally put her head through the rope
And end it all
Nobody missed her
Not even her own father
He was too drowned in alcohol
So she hung there for days
Until finally the rope gave out
And let her limp body fall
