Oh – My aunt has affordable virtues

Father left,
Mother right
After. Aftermath –
Only an aunt, do the maths.
Aunty, dropped out,
Dropping down, to pick me up.
Her tears wailing out,
Go to school, wake up!
She doesn’t go out,
Mentions no office,
Her purse,
Is never on monetary pause.
Like straying hens –
Sickness sent me, shivering home.
Unisex clothings, like hen litters –
Shivering moans filled my ears.
