Indignities Suffered

Written for:  Go Dog Go Cafe - Tuesday Writing Prompt
(posted by Devereaux and Beth)

"Use 'manipulation', 'children', and 'recovery' in a poem."

Manipulations by teachers
caused suffering
of indigenous children
who needed the rest
of their lives
to recover, and speak
of indignities perpetrated.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
