NIGHTMARE

WELCOME  TO  MY  NIGHTMARE*

My clients   2 four yr. olds   are not native

to this land   Kidnapped and brought over

under cover of night   They are not native

to crackhouses or police cars  They are   survivors

of: child porn  babybeatings  starvation

 

In our modern city   in the 21st century

hidden in apartment blocks & shelters

Police knock & spirit them away    2 a.m.

A strange car drives them to foster-homes   all alone

They are native to the: war-zone  foxhole  closet

 

The truth has no heart  & life is long

__

*(Sam’s refrain at the start of every single

therapy session for 3 yrs)
