Adoption

Our World in Poetry

Adoption season is right around the corner
We could adopt some children
Bill Clinton just signed the Adoption and Safe Families Act
All we have to do is sign on the dotted line
And the children will love us
And we will care for them
And look after them
And raise them well

We will become parents

And our children will go on to become such great things
like mothers
and singers
and mechanics
and public speakers
and military — men
and rapists

don’t you care about our things?
don’t you touch our things
don’t you break our things
don’t you care about our white people things
big things
little things
funny things
useless things
nonreusable things
decorative things
these things, oh these things

adoption is just a thing
