Female Infanticide

Female Infanticide  

The birth of a girl child is most feared
And many a novel way is heard

About how her life is taken
Leaving us all totally shaken

Killed she is right after birth
Even before her first cries are heard

Parents proclaim she’s a burden
To their family – already poverty ridden

Is the value of a “life” so cheap I wonder
Their ability to create and destroy so freely makes me ponder

The laws against such acts should be made stricter
Ensuring equality of the female gender.
