Poem: Named and Shamed

Right from the start you were

Aiming to rip innocence from

Young kids in your care

Molesting for your pleasure

Our weakness laid bare

Never once did you stop

Doing what you wanted

Dragging boys down for your lust

Owning flesh with our guilt

Our lives decayed like rust

Leaving minds scarred and scared

And now my long dead demon I have

Named you
