Beautiful Children

Filed under: Poetry — migueltio @ 10:00 am

Beautiful summer days
bring out
beautiful summer ways
of cooking out
and eating out
of noticing a garden’s
beautiful flowers
of swimming and sunning
for carefree hours
of planning a fabulous
getaway vacation
the memories of which
should last a generation.

So why has this summer
seen so frequent
the abomination
of mindless parents
subjecting their children
to heat and suffocation
in vehicles locked under
the sun’s brutal radiation
there needs to be a stop
to this cruel operation
love for children
needs a reconciliation
with these parents who think
they are a material creation
every parent found guilty
should have to pay reparation
by being subjected to
the same
cruel
brutalization.
