Whipping Boy

The venerated object
of the anger
from a sister
towards
a Brother
a Father
or and unidentified
other…..
the whipping boy
receives punishment
undeservedly not his own
though the benefits
far outweigh
the whippings.

Robert

Neat how you had that sad underlying message within, but that's so true, yet so seldom understood.  Happy you posted it.
