The Auction (Poetry by GalaxyRat)
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.
