RAndom ACts of MEanNess

she was beginning to d
while sister 2
was looking
for tomorrows outfit
when she remembered

they were in Dayton
when they saw
someone calling themselves a mom
hitting a baby
"physically abusing" #2 spoke up
in a neighborhood
and no one could find their cell
while another woman was
running, "not jogging because of what she was wearing"
down the street..

unspeakable concrete images
not able to help

soft teary words,
"If she didn't want the baby she should give it
to a foster home or adoption.."
and #2 sadly said, "the baby was really crying..really...."

random acts of meaness caught outside of safety

two thumbs up for writing this. it's so sad, especially when even a child can see the atrocity.
