“Storm Drain Baby”

backyard 4


JP at Olive Garden continues to post my stolen work.  I have made a complaint to Blogger (that took days! they complain copyright infringement (which is what JP did…) is rampant around the world.  Jingle has also deleted my comments and has blocked me from making more.  LOL!

 For those poets who were as outraged as I, I sincerely thank them.  For those who continue to remain mum….I hope you never experience this.  The destruction of my poem “Storm Drain Baby” on their site  was unreal. 

Copyright infringement is real and destructive.  It’s Illegal and Unethical.  Jingle needs to be thrown off the internet.  I am not the first poet they have done this to, and I won’t be the last.  They are nothing but foul thieves.  Certainly not poets. Just stupid cowards.

Jane…below is the real and original poem by me. Jingle doesn’t have the chops to write poetry.  They are just common thieves.


Yesterday a baby was born,

Placed in a storm drain

To die by a father who wasn’t.

Three days of heavy rain

Washed the Blood of this Lamb

Into the sea.


He was found, expected to live

And died,

His short life measured in scant public



The 19 year old father said as they

Led him away:

“It was a miscarriage gone wrong.”


The rain continues today

Rushing down streets

To storm drains,

Making a gurgling sound.

This happened in Atlanta.  A horrific killing of a newborn.  Suffer the little children, indeed.

    Yes, they do. It was a catharsis to write, though.
