She Wondered Aloud

-

With her crumpled dress and bruised body,

She wondered aloud,

If dad had waited till the bus came, 

I could have been saved. 

If mom had allowed me to learn karate, 

I would have defended myself. 

If the boys were taught to respect girls, 

I would have not been assaulted. 

She wondered aloud,

With her crumpled dress and bruised body.
