The Auction (Poetry by GalaxyRat)

Updated on June 19, 2017
GalaxyRat profile image

GalaxyRat is fond of rats and writing. And dark poetry. She knows that people don't like all these things together... but who cares?

Stolen, robbed,

Beaten, mauled.

Nothing shows on her thin face as they call out the numbers.

One young bloke

Calls out a bid,

And in one fine stroke,

She is sold.

Off across the country to God knows where,

On highways but mostly backroads,

It is of a occurrence so rare

That she will escape.

Across the land, away from home,

She is put up for sell again,

And then again she and her buyer roams.

Scared of getting caught,

the buyer will ship her off again,

Back on auction

To the hands of many more women and men.

      Actually, no, I haven't heard of any. And it's OK to be curious!

      Sorry Galaxy Rat, but I am interested in everything. Organised wealthy pedophiles would not keep to the back roads, so you must surely be reflecting on gypsy's, or just as a matter of interest, who else would keep to the back roads. Are there any other organised groups? would really like to know. That is of course if you have heard of any.

      Well, that could be part of the poem as well. Thanks for reading!

      Poetry which moves you to reflect on the unhappiness caused by some unfeeling human beings. When you write about keeping to the back roads, is your poetry about gypsy's?

      Thanks for commenting, Shannon. Yes, it is sad, but, this is what life is. We have to live through it (and hopefully try to stop it), even if it costs us our lives (which it usually does). Thanks for reading.

      This is such a sad reality. Makes me sick to think about it. I hope those people who work to stop it keep making a difference. I used to have a friend whose daughter works on a trafficking task force. What kind of person that must take to confront such atrocities against other people.

      You are welcome, Tamara. People are scared to intervene, and I don't blame them.

      Wish there was a way to make a difference concerning such huge atrocities as what you have described above. Sometimes I feel so helpless. But, we need to be made aware of these horrors. Thank you!

      No, I cannot believe this people. They have no morals, they have no beliefs. They are just scum. Thanks for reading.

      Sold to people with no soul.What kind of person does this. Rotten inside, no though for the heartache they cause the young child. However, the truth always comes out. Sometimes it takes thirty years, but the truth comes out. Nearly thirty years ago, three young girls were kidnapped. Luckily the fourth child, picked up by a woman at a bus stop, and offered a lift, escaped after being tied up and placed in a cupboard. The police were called and gave chase when they tried to escape. The boyfriend then shot his girlfriend and then himself. Now recently on TV they show people digging on the beach where he had apparently buried the girls. Which is utter nonsense. I read in a magazine just after they had committed suicide that she had phoned her mother and said, 'You won't understand, it was for the money.' So obvious these kids were sold. The unbelievable part of this story is that this woman was one of the girls aunt. Can you believe such a low down .........

      I know, Flourish. I hate it when the government hides it, and then the media makes it seem better than it is.

      So sad that this goes on in any country but especially right under our noses and we don't even know it.
