The sun baked our ranch house. 
Bangs echoed as loud as drums. 
Frightful screams rang down the hall. 
Who was here? What did they want? 
Oh, it’s Step-Dad with two bottles down. 
He didn’t want help, so we needed out.

This is written in a Korean poetic form called sijo. I was inspired to write this by my past experiences.
