It’s an old story

He hit her

Beat her down

Maybe to assert his masculinity

I mean, what makes you a man like beating a woman?

Show them who is boss

Kick them while they are down

And do it in front of your children so they can know their place

She cowered

Deep in her corner

Reiterated her pain

Reiterated her shame

It’s a familiar story

His litter has failed him

Maybe if he invests in his second litter?

Surely his genes will pan out?!

I am confused

What does your litter’s personal success

Have to do with your personal failures?
