Crisis Text


There comes a time in every child’s growth
(much oftener than once), when life becomes
too thick to process, though he may have both
his parents present and a wealth of chums.
It takes a village to address the job
of rearing to adulthood children well.
Some relatives and strangers make a mob
protective and supportive. Truth to tell:

Extended families are fractured now.
Communities have lost coherence too.
Without a threat, we tend to forget how
to interact, receive a fact or view,
respectfully. We’re sorry guides are dead.
We’ll have to substitute an app instead.
