Knight’s mother was nowhere to be found when she got home and her son was with a man, assumed to be Michelle’s father, which was drunk and not properly watching after her son.

In the beginning the poem is abruptly because the second word “too”, of the very first line of the poem assumes actions that has previously being going on before.
