and the throne game continues…

tonight
when you’ve finished
bathing
your child
and
tuck them
into
their warm bed
as
they cuddle
their
security
blanket
or
toy
please
add to your prayers
of
thanksgiving
a prayer
of
last rites
for
a teenage soul
the fifth child
to
be sacrificed
for
political showmanship
while
under
the care
of
border patrol
it needn’t
be a long prayer
for
it was
a short life
