Headline Rhymes

We rightly imagine the pain
Of kids separated at our borders

But tend to ignore the same
Happening in other corners

I’m talking, of course
Of the halls of divorce

Where false claims
Are part of the game

It’s no myth, the silver bullet
But the trigger, let’s not pull it

Because there may be nothing worse
Than failing to put children first

Views on the news, delivered so smooth. This week’s inspired by:

Divorce and the ‘Silver Bullet’
