(Saving Vietnamese Children)
Child quickly spins away,
does rolled loops after hit,
then weakly stumbles up,
emits piercing pain squeals,
lands with full body falls.
Child offers grins to appease,
extends full respect stoops,
she tiredly humbles self,
softly begs with appeals,
distraught calls lost -- ignored.
Mocked child wins beater’s rage,
cruel villain’s laughter whoops,
criminal only grumbles,
stomps her with his hard heels,
bastard gives body mauls.
Child’s hands pinned to thin sides,
feeble being droops -- no hope,
broke finger fumbles grasp,
confused mind reels from fear,
small mouth’s loud dreary bawls.
Vietnam ignites sins,
home assailant groups come,
distant cross hairs humble,
firm trigger squeeze seals fate,
child crawls to freedom now --
Child spins, loops, stumbles, squeals, falls.
Someone, oh please -- reach as child calls.
