Motherhood Misplaced

motherhood betrayed
with a child in her arms
on the streets of sorrow
from strangers she seeks
aid she has just introduced
her little baby to the begging
 trade ..wretched life walking
on a razor blade ..her life fades
her cosmic fortitude misery
she cannot evade acche din
are for the rich and the famous
for the poorest of the poor
no upgrade the cops
local goons for the share
of her earnings she is preyed
vulnerable very much afraid
a broken pitcher of flowing
tears that god accidentally
made battered flayed
