This time
which should be marked
by comfort , safety and new love
anticipation as well as appreciation
of new life
is not to be

within a chamber marked by blood
discarded trash, feces and crud
nature's system is derailed
by the invasion of a womb
for the hopeful? naught but doom

Babies well beyond the time
of discussion whether they're human
indeed already born alive
and as for love they yearn and strive
with dim new sight
what do they see
just before their final pain
of disconnect from infant brain?

Not a mother's loving face
in this hell that has no grace
They see instead a spotted monster
whose name shall ever after be
a synonymn for heartless cruelty
a master of immorality

This is where he should be kept alive in one of the worse prisons and the inmates informed of his deeds, though only kept there for a life sentence for each child he butchered. I looked up the name and was disgusted as anyone would be.
There are some things we even now, hear of in this day and age that will make us shudder.
Thanks for writing this up so well..
Take care young one, Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

This monster is 72 years old and will spend the rest of his life in a maximum security prison. Fortunately with his age this won't be too long of a wait before Hell gets him. Appreciate you reading this horrendous poem............stan
