Dreamed the authority
came in to inspect our house
just like when I was a kid

A man came in to see
just how far down my mom
had fallen

I remember him
poking around our closet
looking for booze

I knew she hid the vodka
in her dresser drawer

Well, there are still the authorities
poking around, rightly or wrongly

I wonder if they know
how the kids feel long after
they have gone
