The Little Girl

By Crystal Passion

Quiet home
she's alone

Little girl
painful world

Broke a plate
dad's home late

Mom smokes dope
cannot cope

Little girl
painful world

Something crashes
thirty lashes

Body numb
suck on thumb

Little girl
painful world

punished often
three foot coffin

No more girl
in this world
