An afternoon nap

By Arthur Yap

arthur-yap Arthur Yap

the ambitious mother across the road

is at it again. proclaming her goodness

she beats the boy. shouting out his wrongs, with raps

she begins with his mediocre report-book grades.

she strikes chords for the afternoon piano lesson,

her voice stridently imitates 2nd. lang. tuition,

all the while circling the cowering boy

in a manner apt for the most strenuous p.e. ploy.

swift are all her contorted movements,

ape for every need; no soft gradient

of a consonant-vowel figure, she lumbers

& shrieks, a hit for every 2 notes missed.

his tears are dear. each monday,

wednesday, friday, miss low & madam lim

appear & take away $90 from the kitty

leaving him an adagio, clause analysis, little

pocket-money

the embittered boy across the road

is at it again. proclaming his bewilderment

he yells at her. shouting out her wrongs, with tears
