A child is born

youngradical

A child is born
and is brought into a world
where she must answer for her decrepit soul.

A child is born
and brought into a world
where she must not hit, yet honor the perpetrators of war.

A child is born
and brought into a world
where her innate compassion for animals is coddled as she is fed their carcasses.

The great tragedy is that we forget
how truly mad the world is.
