De-Humanized

 

“bun in the oven”

“late”

“bat in the cave”

“the rabbit died”

“up the duff”

“tin roof dusted”

“pea in the pod”

“knocked-up”

“up the spout”

“oops”

they are belittled

de-humanized

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
