A Short and Illustrated Thought #12

Posted in Photography, suicide on May 22, 2012 by smpiv

The littlest one lay dead

Her little head resting in her bed

One shot clean through the head.


The three others had fled

To a neighbor their eyes now pled.


Come back to me my little flock, said Mama

Just down the block.


With patient feet they walked to a certain fate.

They passed one by one through the front gate.


Mama’s face lit with pride

As she ushered them inside.


The door shut tight to prying eyes.


Pop, pop, pop

Three little birds dropped dead



One left for Mama through the head.


Why Mama?  Why?

It should only be suicide.


Blessed are the children,

Damned be that woman.
