Moer

moer! the baby cries

mother's depleted breast

yields no more milk to slurp

moer! the baby cries

untouched toys lay at foot

he will not play with them Again

moer! the baby cries

the mother is empty

she cries out of frustration

moer! the baby cries

little hands reach out for

something more to desecrate

moer! the baby cries

the sad mother says I can't

You have devoured it all
