By Andrea Silva

They are a mockery
They only love themselves
And their guaranteed ascension
Hell bent
For every child not aborted
A jewel is set upon their eternal crown

They make fools of themselves
Lying to the police
Chasing after strangers with their miracle child in tow
All that’s missing is a Super Soaker full of holy water

And bloody fetuses
Delusional rants
Occult like circles
Justified harassment
“Blessed by the blood of the babies”

Ignorant of facts and bodily autonomy
If they advocated half as much
For the best sexual education
And excellent foster care systems
Their time on this earth would be better spent
