N o i t r o b a...

The vacuum wasn't working today,
So a dozen infants were spared aspiration
In a room custom built as a suite
For natal anathema,

While the deep, steel disposal box,
Its lively guise of shimmer
Is paled by 'clinical' darkness,
Devoid of small body parts.

Sleep well, doctors of homocide,
The vacuum repair-man/accomplice
Guarantees a productive tomorrow
To the angst of all of man's gods,

Who see fallen wings from River Styx
Shadowing black-bloody hallways,
Into the surgical killing field
Of the tiniest innocents.
