Trafficking

Trafficking, A Free Verse Poem on Human trafficking - Walk In Verse (WIV)

Baseball and lollipops,
Football stars and cheerleader squads,
Basketball and the movies,
Everyone lives in make-believe.

Snap, crackle, and pop,
The girl next door was dropped:
Knocked out, drugged up, into the trunk;
Sold for the price of a gumdrop.

Drug trafficking and kidnapping,
Girls are snatched for sexual acts;
Men and women cheer the screen,
As they willfully ignore the obscene.

Who cares about our societies,
Or the people given to adversity,
As long as entertainment is king,
Those girls are just a long lost dream.
