EXPULSION FROM OSTRICH HEAVEN
Taxi-men swerving as pebbled muck-balls hit windscreens, slamming on their brakes to save a life;
venting at junior ruffian quickly quitting scene
challenged by chest-beating sire, backed by doting wife.
Empty bottles smashed against our neighbour’s panes last night,
frightening the tiny child within.
Crossing to my window, saw small figure taking flight:
raging six-year-old – girlfriend inside had dropped him.
Tightly squeezed snowballs pummeled the harmless tied-up dog –
vicious roaming free were left alone.
Drag numbed minds from the sentimental milk-and-cookie fog.
Children must be TAUGHT how to nurture every home.
