Of Abortion - Poem by James McLain

Half of all black women inner city
are targeted.
For abortions.
Where I live,
many of the children whom are,
should not be pregnant.
If a child of fifteen, sixteen, seventeen is a woman.
Well then if you say so.
Many of these children because these woman
are drinking on drugs or doing both.
Will have permanentness, damaged babies.
Who wants to adopt that which can never be.
Simple am I you because.
The future when it is belongs to who the future is.
When you give away your son at birth because.
When you fight to keep alive a daughter,
that is here because.
Because she could have gone the way her brother did.
A plastic bag a funeral for a friend the way some
would have you think, I think you think where you might be.
