it takes a village






it takes a village

(a nursery rhyme)

mother rocks her little boy
fearing for his life
runs for safety overnight
hated Isis wife

mother asks for help for him
mother's wishes spurned
takes a village to raise a child
but no one's that concerned

little baby frail and cold
little baby coughs
mother rocks her little boy
until his sweet heart stops.
