Paper Dolls

03:21 Posted by Afro Latina , , , No comments
796 paper dolls
We cut them, yes
A chain of sadness
An emblem of pain

796 paper dolls
The strain of lives
Statutory madness
A poem of disdain

796 little dolls
Their lives, so brittle
Intolerants reign
Provide no sustain

796 piled dolls
My hands, they hurt
But no pain bigger than
The image of slain

796 huddled dolls
Each frame - a guess
Lives with no rights
No one to declaim

796 plain dolls
Have they no shame?
So much violence
Cause me to inflame

796 I will recall
Brutality is your game
Life is no rite
Your dogma is lame
