the wrong side of cages

“Please, I’m not big enough to fight.” The brown eyes of children beseech me from the wrong side of a cage. I see my girls in every one of them.

 

Their keepers are the monsters we must protect our children from. Not the ones under their bed. Not the ones in comic books. Those are monsters for a better time.
