Enough Is Enough
~Marge Tindal~ 1999

Blonde curly hair
and a quick little smile.
She may not be yours,
but she's SOMEBODY'S child.

Quick as a bunny.
Fast on little feet.
He might not be yours,
but SOMEBODY thinks he's sweet.

Standing there grinning
from ear to ear.
They might not be yours ...
but to GOD they are dear.

They are GOD'S children,
and you'd better beware ...
if you, so much as, harm
one hair on their head.

If you harm a child
or cease their breath,
I promise you ...
you'll be sentenced to DEATH.

Sentenced to death.
Swiftly carried out.
Not even a chance that you'll
win this bout.

Not years of appeals
dragged out in court as before.
One trial ... one conviction ... that's it.
Then YOU live no more.

Sixty days, start - to - finish
is the waiting time you'll get.
No time to wonder
if you can beat the system yet.

Abuse a child
and I promise you.
Hell won't be half as hard
as what we'll do to you.

Harm a child, even once,
and you won't see another day.
Hell will have to wait
'til we're finished making you pay.

In the pits with Satan
you will dwell ...
if you harm a child
you're going QUICKLY to Hell.

Heard enough?

Well, if you agree,
send this to your senator,
your representative,
your congressman,
and a copy to me.


*This is dedicated to our ~Hoot~
and the caregivers of abused children.
Thank you, Ruth ... for encouraging me
to post it. *~Marge*~

Wow!  Applauding here!!  You betcha I'll print this out...this is powerful stuff.
Anyone who mistreats a child in this way deserves even more than you describe!  Well done.

Thanks, Sally -

From the response when I
sent it to my other friends ...
they all felt the same
way as we do.
We all need to get LOUD
and DEMAND that the laws change.
If all our voices are raised,
I believe we CAN make a difference.
And in the meantime ...
we all need to pray for the children.

~*Marge*~
