North American Dreaming: Barbed Wire Babies

William Burkholder's poem reminds us never to forget those innocent babes who become war victims.

Barbed wire babies
Locked in war torn Hell
Victims of atrocities
In the cities as they fell
War torn innocents
Of the guiltiest design
Never once having
Considered their crimes
Against the readers
Of story books rhymes
Huddled in tiny masses
Quivering in hidden crevasses
Hiding from bullet and bomb
Help us dry their tears
