Thats all She Needs
What she needed was - attention
Post a picture reeallll nice…

Daddy never tucked her in - at night
So she post her face – every - night now

So many children, so much loss.
Many tears shed, from many a different cause.
Maybe Mom died of cancer, or a dad with no answer.
A drug deal gone wrong, broken homes and broken bones.

Forgotten and neglected, maybe caused by a bottle.
It could...Read More

I was flying above the clouds like a fairy with shiny wings
And was talking to the rising moon like a little pheasant 
When my mother woke me up from my dream 
To have breakfast with my favorite cream

Child Soldier
My village was dusty and burning
Everyone was screaming and running
I stood dumb in the chaos, my eyes rolling
Tried to listen out for mother’s calling

The noise of death was the only sound
My pants wetted, a boot pinned me to the ground
My...Read More

Your sickness dances on your soul
Strengthens the cage that holds you 
Walks back and forth like an inquisitor
Allows the dripping of pain and horrors of again to spike 
Forces heart and hands to want more

Ince St Child
Ince St. Child
by Michael R. Burch 
When she was a child
in a dark forest of fear,
imagination cast its strange light
into secret places,
scattering traces
of illumination so bright,
years later, she could still find them there,
their light undefiled.
When she was young,

A World Few Know.
A subterranean world
Deep in the bowels of the ground 
Unseen by the city above
One that seems not to care
Where there isn’t much love
Broken children huddle together
In their makeshift holes
Trying to grt back their lives
The parents stole
Runaways the...Read More

Not Elves, Exactly
by Michael R. Burch

Something there is that likes a wall,
that likes it spiked and likes it tall,

that likes its pikes’ sharp rows of teeth
and doesn’t mind its victims’ grief

All the best from the West

Nobody is steel
Fast is the train
Fast are the wheels
Wheels are round
Wheels are solid
Solid is metal
Solid is rusty
Rusty is puce
Rusty is deteriorating 
Deteriorating is atrocious
Deteriorating is occurring 
Occurring in ancient paper
Occurring in my head
Head is large
Head is hurting
Hurting with malicious memories

Screams, screeches, groans and wails, 
Brutalities, agonies, torture, and blood,

Men are jailed
Women are molested, 
The old are tortured

If you could see through their eyes...and see what they've seen.
You would see a part of this world...where no child should ever be.
The part full of hate...the part full of evil and sin.
Abused little children...tossed aside by their kin.

why cant i just block the terrors out?

Control! Why I say!
It does not make great

It is really a state of mind

The Wall
Winnie, wild-eyed, went insane and sang
“Happy Birthday” in the rain, while she
washed away her bloody pain.

Now all day long she sings that song,
she sings it loud, she sings it strong,
walled in where she does not belong.

For much unlike her maddened...Read More

The Economy of Duality
Child laborers like us
Live in a world of reality
Where domestic violence is a commonality
Amidst high infant mortality

Mafia's rewarded for their masculinity
No individuality
Fear of homosexuality

Ours is a world of frugality
Full of sick mentality
An abundance of rascality, criminality, carnality, illegality
No traces of...Read More

The censer clanks
the smoke rises.
An attempt is made
to hypnotize.
It wafts across
the naive
The priest like
a magician has
a trick he uses
to deceive.
The incense odor,
causes a spiritual
Chanting in Latin,
locks his grip.
Affecting only  
those who are on 
 a guilt trip.
A stronger odor...Read More
