A family of four
In tiny bedroom
Every sleeping night
Surrounded with
Some Holy Bibles
Six burning candles
Six smoking incense
Six turari ishegun
To ward off evil spirits
A smoking bedroom
Offensive perfume
Overrides the air
No fresh air
And every each night
There is coughing
Family coughing
Father included
Mother included
Children included
Continuous coughing
Coughing their ways
Into tuberculosis
Or cardiac arrest
Maybe they'll adapt
Or closer to death.
