Birds and Bees by Shirley

In school today
the teacher say
bout the birds and bees
in fact she say
they make love and baby
a wife bird
does it wid a husband bird
and a wife bee
does it wid a husband bee
but dat can’t be right
because I see
Daddy do it wid Mummy
and Daddy do it wid me

from Books On Child Abuse 1[3] Ssh Ssh Baby – Shirley Cooper [19] A Survivor Myself. Experiences of Child Abuse. Edited by Pauline Kirk. 1994

This was sent to me from Shirley’s facebook [4] where she published it but I have not been able to connect with her yet.
