FOX and HOUND

Dear readers I normally don’t publish posts with profanity in them. Please excuse me as I don’t aim to offend anyone of you with this post. At times decent,clean words will fail us and the more appropriate word needed to express the intensity of the emotion will be a swear word. Whether you agree or not makes no difference. Thanks for your understanding

FOX and HOUND

They met as children

When their universe was new

She held the stars

In her deep-set eyes

She knew nothing of meanness and lies

 

The fox and hound

These two grew and grew

A friendship formed

From 2 seeds planted in the ground

 

The years went on

Characters were set in place

While she played with dolls and lace

He’d take a thousand beatings in his face

 

They pledged a friendship’s love

He said he’d forever have her back

They pledged a friendship’s love

Promised he would never slack

 

And she trusted the fox

With her very life she did

Threw caution to the seven winds

Only to end up in a box

 

The one who pledged to have her back

Was  nowhere to be found

That night the predator came

He did not stop him

He did worse than doing nothing

He took his turn in his best friend‘s rape.

 

And my heart weeps with hers

And my heart aches with hers

For how can a mother have stopped this?

The rape of her own child

 

And justice will do nothing

Not a fucking thing will be done

For all the laws men write

Are all stacked up against her

 

The laws of this land are perverse

Everything is ass backward

Progress travels in reverse

For you see the laws say,” She asked for it.”

 

And justice will do nothing

Not a fucking thing will be done

For all the laws men write

Are designed to undermine her

 

You didn’t just rape my child

You stole from all of us

You violated our way of life

Run like hell before God takes yours
