post traumatic birth syndrome…

post traumatic birth syndrome

the ephemeral joy
of a child’s birth
soon gives way
to the realization
that
world streets
are
war zones now
paris
chicago
los angeles
cities
small
and
large
are all battlefields
battlefields
where children
are the victims
victims
bruised
and
scarred
by those
who
should
protect them
but
the children
by their small stature
are
the proverbial pawns
pawns
used
in an adult game
of pornographic political greed
where children
are seen
as
child soldiers
their deaths
the price
of doing
business
