by Nevada Kerr

She felt a strange vibration
Something stirring in her belly
After months of hibernation
She woke up wet and smelly

Couldn't tell one from the other
They were mocking her with ease
To think she was the mother
Was this some kind of new disease

Perhaps her genes surrendered caution
Or the angels misconstrued
Miscalculation or misfortune
She wanted them removed

Ultrasound revealed the outrage on a screen
Evidence too real to discard as a dream
A brutal revelation that something went awry
Two in one undone, better left to die
