• Raised in the sewers, fostered by rats,
    Shunned by society; for what?
    A small, innocent bundle
    Lays in the dreary place.
    Its eyes tightly shut,
    Its mouth gaping
    wide and pink.
    Pale skinned.
    The child dreams
    Of a new hope.
    A new source of light
    And a mother's embrace.
    The child cries out, its wailings
    Ring out clear in the starless night
    Of isolation and loneliness.
