Nothing to Feel

Frost on the window,
coats on the bed.
children are covered
up to their heads.
Four in a bed
head to feet,
with no words said
its straight to sleep.
Fire has gone out,
no coal left.
Father has gout.
mother thinks of theft.
One more meal
left in the pot.
Nothing to feel
just left there to rot.
