To Be in a Cage

Fri, 06/28/2013 - 10:28 -- NatBad

Once upon a time

there was no windows

Or hardwood floors

Only ten girls

Ten beds

And the watchful eye of the staff.

We had no shoes

We were a danger with our possessions

there were girls you were fearful of

And others became your friend.

But we were not safe.

Not for three days.

Not for twelve.

Not for twenty-six.
