First Born Daughter

WARNING – THIS POEM MAY OFFEND SOME PEOPLE
THIS IS NOT MY INTENTION BUT TO DRAW ATTENTION TO
GROSS ATROCITIES (FEMALE CIRCUMCISION) STILL PERFORMED IN SOME CULTURES UPON YOUNG WOMEN AND FEMALE CHILDREN


Sunshine to her almond eyes
Sent to wrestle nature’s prize
Hid atop alluring thighs
Underneath her suppressed cries…………

(SHOUTING)

…….FIRST BORN DAUGHTER !
WE JUST ORTA,
LIVE WITHOUT HER,
SHOULD WE FEED HER?
THE PROCEDURE,
KNIFE IMPEDE HER !!!

Artist's Description

It came to my attention, as a young 29 year old man in 1994, that the barbaric ritual of female circumcision was still being performed in some cultures around the globe. As did most of my art and poems to date, this one arose in my mind in relation to the abhorrence i felt in relation to this disturbing matter.
