Horror Story

Dr Frankenstein

comes to Alabama

and creates life

but not as we know it Jim,

Life from the body parts,

Of violating  men:

in incubators

made from ‘her’

but for the moral

convenience of ‘him’

While those who lost

a spark, a hope, a precious dream

Stand beside the women

forced to deliver with one last scream.
