What Are Orphans?

In Poetry on March 4, 2015 at 3:37 pm

Orphans with parents

Their love

Unrequited

They are runts

Neglected and Middle-Class

Defensively crass

Losses

Labeled defunct

Inert mass

Useless

We must be ruthless

They are runts

They are affronts

To the Average

Woe is he

Born creative

In a world

Glorifying

Normalcy
