Wow! Totally intense and emotional poem about battered men! It is not often talked about, but does exist quite often in our world. It is just as horrible a crime as battering a women - it's very offensive and wrong. Thank you for having the courage to write of this crime, it needs to come to light! RoseAnn
Pregnant with passion and pathos as the reality of a crime that is often swept under the rug is powerfully brought in to light. Well done my friend!
