Bastard Children

oh, look what we've come to!

grandiose and freakish

making a fatal entrance

stalking fresh meat

the hunted seeking hunter

mixed up and inside-out

depicting desperation

licking darkening wounds

bloody and excoriated

our backs arch on the floor

so soon new life will breathe

a melodramatic generation

birthed unscripted; untamed

if this is a dig at kids born out of wedlock then it is cold and unfeeling. Things happen and getting pregnant does happen out of wedlock. For myself,I would take great offense if this were the meaning of this piece for I was one of those born out of wedlock...birth no matter what the background is a gift and should be looked at in that manner....
