“bun in the oven”


“bat in the cave”

“the rabbit died”

“up the duff”

“tin roof dusted”

“pea in the pod”


“up the spout”


they are belittled


no matter how its said

they become less than human

when they are no longer child

neither he

nor she

but an it

just a clump of cells

a mistake


they have been dehumanized

and they can be ended

without a concern

like an ache

or a pain

or less
