Do you remember the story
Of the girl whose parents were swept away
By a tropical monsoon
Or burned in a fiery village ?
The girl child floated on to
The safety of a den of wolves
Where she was raised as one of their own
Where she gave birth to wolves
That tore at her breast with their teeth
Did you ever feel she wasn’t safe ?
Or did you know she had found a far better fate,
Had been shown better care
than if she remained with her true family ?
