something horrible in the news

She was a brave girl

with a little white dog

young and blond

with two young boys

She was wearing chanel sunglasses

all black they were

she took off her glasses to talk to the presenter

I was so sad

by what she said

that he'd gauged out her eyes

and left her for dead

What kind of person could do that to another

a girlfriend

a lover

and above all a mother

I hope they lock him away

and throw out the key

put him in a black cell

with no windows to see

a madman, assasin,

a vile ugly brut

that I think they should shoot

(a true story of a young woman who was attacked by her boyfriend and blinded for life)
