Small Tragedies

by cricketjeff on October 27, 2011.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

A beautiful innocent face
Finished last in humanity’s race
When a child’s artless valour
Became deathly pallor
As she drowned in her mother’s disgrace

Author notes

An attempt at a dark, and not darkly funny, limerick.
