Write this poem:
"The greatest tragedy is –––––––––"
A child is left alone
You look at her and wonder how
this can be. You bemoan–
she looks young,
practicing her keep-away frown.
Amidst group of others–
Where can these children's parents be,
ill, jailed, single mothers
with no kin?
Weather will grow wintry.
Will they be forced indoors,
Sometimes a hellish place, unclean.
They need so much more–
family. Think what that could mean.
