Mother

Have you ever guzzled
The last drop of alcohol
And raped your mother?

This is what we do,
Metaphorically,
When we read
The morning news
About a woman’s rape
And sip our tea
leisurely.

hey dan,

this is poignant stuff...
the emphasis on "nonchalantly" is (imho) unnecessary... it hits you anyway...

Very disheartening news Dan. Is this a prelude to such heinous acts yet to come this year, for a country under spotlight.. Is this free with growth.. I am lost comtemplating..

*sigh*

that was sobering! but u're right, often wondered about the same thing, then shrugged it off and got on with life.
