TOWARD THE CROSS THEY WALK

*****

Toward the cross they walk

children of the damned

tell me, whatever did they do?

They were born, that is all!

Their mothers were unwed

Oh! shame  Oh! horror

quickly, hide them away

work them to the bone

Pictures of Virgin Mary

paragon of motherly virtue

displayed on workhouse walls

reminders to the decadent

Each and every fallen woman

must atone for her sins

never mind the babies born

and dear fathers not to blame

Or else find a saintly mother

with hand-me-down love

hand-me-down clothes

and never spare the rod!

So much better to die young

with souls so wickedly black

in the eyes of the Church.

Baptism? No, it’s not for them!

Malnutrition, disease and sickness

wracking endless little bodies

sacrifice, blessing in disguise!

says Sister in her black and white

No need to call a priest

his prayers, they’ll be wasted

on such insignificant mortals

who’ve never known God

In no Christian churchyard

will they rest in peace

not even a pretty shroud

to cover up their innocence

Haunting skulls with black eyes staring

broken amongst the dirt and grime

blooming white angel flowers

nature alone dedicates a shrine

Dedicated to my great grandmothers: Annunziata Giustina Fabbrucci Frandi and Raffaela Marisi Mansi Greco (Grego)

During research into my Italian family tree I met Italian genealogists and historians who believed that the two great Italian mass migrations were mistakes that  left Italy the poorer.
