Q1 Solution

ANSWER

The poem is about a child who is verbally & physically abused at home by his/her father and he/she in turn transfers this behavior by constantly bullying a girl at school the following day.  Let us examine the poem for evidence. 

  • Stanza 1 tells us that the victim avoids the persona in class “I see her in class, she avoids me”
  • Stanza 2 recounts the abuse at home which is mirrored at school “He hits me at home so I hit the dumb heifa”

These are only a few examples which lend credence to the situation in the poem.  Feel free to identify others from the poem under discussion.
