Note: This was my second 'hit' after 'Little Emo Girl' and it's one of my
favorites so far. I guess it's kind of a twist on the lullaby 'Hush Little Baby' but
it doesn't really go along with the tune throughout the whole poem. Anyway, I hope
you like it as much as I do. :]]]]

Hush little child, don't you cry.
Mother's in the bathroom wondering why.
With every last cut you place at hand,
mother's screaming louder, ringing up the band.
And they play - - -
Hush little child don't speak a word,
this song is sung for the reassured.
While daddy's at the door, beating it down
you're hiding by the window, watching the town.
He screams and yells for you to come,
but you're too scared of the breath tainted rum.
You listen with hope to what your angels say,
and they play - - -
"Listen to the children, they're all free.
So take my hand and come with me.
Only one sacrifice must be made,
press against your wrist that rusted blade."
Mommy's in the shower,
Daddy's yelling louder,
your heart is tapping,
the baby is napping.
Their screams can be heard,
now you're reassured.
your heart has stopped tapping,
now you're the one napping.
Now you stand in a place of many places,
standing by a man with a face of many faces.
"Welcome," he said, "my beloved child."
Sadness in his eyes and yet he still smiled.
All around the kids are playing,
Listen, this is what their saying.
"Hush little child, there's no fear.
Your mother and father are not here.
No more hate, not hurt, no lies.
Here is the only place no one cries.
Your mommy and daddy miss you so,
but now there's no place left to go."
