The Pink House - Flash 55 Friday, June 11, 2010
A house of cotton candy pink,
It seems a cheerful place,
But what goes on inside its walls,
Is definitely not the case.
Foster children live here,
In conditions inhumane,
But when state inspectors visit,
No one sees the pain.
Their sad pleas and all their fears….
Their lonely, anguished tears
fall on deaf ears.

Please note - this is a work of pure fiction. This beautiful pink house is NOT,
to my knowledge, home to foster children, nor are unspeakable acts committed within its walls!
