Did you know that pigs are feasting on young flesh?
That corrupt politicians turn a blind eye?

Did you know that your people are sick?
Sick with evil desires that no one dare speak?

You knew? Knew what?
That children can devour children?

Quick!
Look the other way!

Donít see
Canít see

Donít make me look
Donít tell me that!

For Christís sake!
Donít say those words!

It doesnít exist
And you canít make me see it!

Robbie,

It looks like you are venting in verse at something that bothers me as well. There is ever a willingness to react, to do something that satisfies those who feel they should have done something long ago. But there is seldom a willingness really to face the issues and take the hard decisions. It costs too much to really protect children, and there aren't enough sound bytes and photo ops.

Much love,
Larry

It is sick the way our society looks at things.

"there aren't enough sound bytes and photo ops." - How true. I mean seriously, from a media standpoint, is the headline "Children are Safe" seriously going to sell newspapers when you can have eye catching headlines about Trustworthy and Affluent people being accused of sexual abuse? Where's the money making story in protecting children?

It's sick, and sadly too true. Makes me angry. Maybe if enough people get angry, we can do something about it!!!

"Look the other way!" is spot on. So many did.

One of my most vivid memories from the abuse days is of me sitting at the dinner table looking around and thinking, "Why can't you see?" I felt so obvious. But yes, at the same time I also remember being a top chameleon. Pretending and hiding the secret became the priority of my life.

Much love,
Larry
