True Stories Continued...

Having aimed Margaret Atwood's poetry at those who color attrocities against women with a racial undertone, I can't help but rally her again against those in our administration who work to make such attrocities more common:

"...If mother-
hood is sacred, put
your money where your mouth is. Only
then can expect the coming
down to the wrecked & shimmering earth
of that miracle you sing
about, the day
when every child is a holy birth."

(excerpt from "Christmas Carols", found in True Stories by Margaret Atwood)
