How Barbara-Ann Got Broken

by Amy Wustrin

Smothered and neglected and broken

She nurses herself back into good spirits

With cheese danish and donuts

~~things she'd never ordinarily eat (because she'd never ordinarily eat)

But she's got to keep her strength up

And her emotions down.

She fights a private battle

While overseas her freedom is being defended

By a brave young man

Who doesnt even have the decency

To say hello between missions

(Technology is just another way for boys to terrorize girls)

And back on the homefront

The one who insists on talking too much

and texting the same tired question over and over agian...

Somehow decided to never even return her call

And then he went off

To join the other soldiers...

Without even saying good-bye.

Not all acts of terrorism

Make the news.
