Virgin Blood


I awoke in the same prayer in which I met sleep

That the Chinese businessmen and all others who keep

Thailand’s sex trafficking flowing, paying top dollar

For virgin blood,

Will be touched by God in their hearts

Suddenly having respect for the girls’ future husbands

And a drowning realization that they’ve been robbing

The righteous,

A flood of compassion for the unfortunate girls

Suddenly seeing their daughters’ faces in them

And an awakening of a father’s love

Will pour.

Like virgin blood
