Theme: Rape

Mummy's Pet, Is That You?

You were Chubby Cheeks, Dimple Chin, of great fame
Alas, you are a target of rape, a shame
You were Rosy Lips, Teeth within, tenderness
Alas, you are pale, gritted teeth in pain, helplessness
You had Curly Hair, you were Very Fair
Alas, you got treatment, very unfair
Your Blue eyes had dreams brightened
Alas, tearful eyes are frightened
It was survival for life success
Alas, it is struggle for life survival
Mummy’s Pet, is that you?
Teacher’s Pet, is that you?

Comment It's a shame that the society has slowly learned to accept the ever-increasing rape crimes... noone ever speaks about these cases.. eye-catching is the lure of the tinsel world... nothing else really matters to many..
