There is no money in poetry, but then there is no poetry in money.
-Robert Graves

A pictures worth a thousand words,

When all they can ask is why:

they see and feel but then, can't even try

wish they could fly away and join the birds

but around the anckles a chain keeps them tethered in pain,

why do this to a child,

what cloud and rain could fog a brain

to destroy the innocent and mild,

so when they show you the,

scorched and torn picture of their broken lives

won't you please look them in the eyes,

and pay them their words
