I saw black babies bones

bleached by the sun

and I was frightened

 

I heard the cries saw the flies

on their eyes

 and my fear heightened

 

there is nothing I can say

I know of no way

their burden could be lightened

 

is this god’s plan

or the hand of man

the muscles of my stomach tightened

 

does nature seek to reject the weak

or does man strive to make the greedy survive

I am ashamed
