A Father's Rage

Even through an image on tv
how could you not feel his pain
and how could you fail to see
how such a travesty would be a drain

on his soul

his little girl gang raped 
7 times
after  being drugged
by rufinol
in her red bull
or jagermeister 
no doubt set up
by frenemies
and videos taken
by willing accomplices
making a whole world
an accomplice
as the video goes viral 
on Utube

and then
at school after recovering
she's the whore who asked for it
cause she wasn't popular
just pretty
and smart
and craved a little fun 
at a rave
just an excuse to tear out her heart
'cause the sick little freaks
who raped her
were the cool kids
the popular ones

and it's a small town
and it's the pit's about Pitt Meadows
that  the code of silence
protects the sick little freak perpetrators
whom everyone knows
just because their parents
are the movers and shakers
who really should be shaking
in their boots
instead of going on the offensive
which truly offends me

If the sick little freak perpetrators
of a most heinous crime
learn on thing from this outrage
aside from a failure of criminal justice

it is possible they might learn to fear
a father's rage

and my question is
are they so far from human?
not just the little sick freak rapists
but the one's who can just stand 
and watch
and take videos 
while laughing

    yes, yes, the video takers are JUST as bad, and those watching the videos over and over,enjoying them and making them go virile, those guys are not much better. I never heard of this incident. Where and when was it? Very interesting how you like to document social events. Luv, Andrea

    Hi, Gentle Fury...nothing sickens me like crimes against the innocent..unable to defend theimselves...and it's like just when you think you've heard the worse, another one takes its place! This is sick, madness! In spite of this I hope you're well. Always, Annalise

    Oh my God, this is a horrible event, Stephen. How could anyone treat a young girl this way? I just don't understand this type of behavior. And then posting it online!!! My heart goes out to this poor girl, my friend. I hadn't even heard about this incident. "Sick freaks" is too kind a description for these rapists. Very powerful poem that has me seething. Love, Carolyn

    Very moving tale of the raped girl and the raging thoughts of her father, a present day reality , Stephen
