worst case scenario (daily prompt)

20140503-112737.jpg

that no one cares to read this

how does one write this without tears

two hundred seventy six

little girls times twelve dollars a piece

equals indifference for there is no oil in Nigeria

our government turns its back to mothers

begging the question with plaintive cries

tear stained cheeks and scrawled signs with pleas and whys

no help unless they are asked?

is that their answer?

cnn’s top stories became malignant with ignorance but stiviano speaking

plus affleck’s cheating equals higher ratings

greater than two hundred seventy six

little Nigerian girls raped of their innocence becoming

yesterdays news.
