The Attack

I Can Only

Windchimes on Christmas

Beaten:

My name is Tiffany.

I am three,

My eyes are swollen.

I cannot see,

I must be stupid,

I must be bad,

What else could have made

My daddy so mad?

I wish I were better

I wish I weren’t ugly,

Then maybe my mommy

Would still want to hug me.

I can’t do a wrong

I can’t speak at all

Or else I'm locked up

All day long.

When I'm awake I'm all alone

The house is dark

My folks aren’t home

When my mommy does come home

I'll try and be nice,

So maybe I'll just get

One whipping tonight.

I just heard a car

My daddy is back

From Charlie’s Bar.

I hear him curse

My name is called

I press myself

Against the wall

I try to hide

From his evil eyes

I’m so afraid now

I’m starting to cry

He finds me weeping

Calls me ugly words,

He says it’s my fault

He suffers at work.

He slaps and hits me

And yells at me more,

I finally get free

And run to the door

He’s already locked it

And I start to bawl,

He takes me and throws me

Against the hard wall

I fall to the floor

With my bones nearly broken,

And my daddy continues

With more bad words spoken,

"I’m sorry!” I scream

But it’s now much too late

His face has been twisted

Into a unimaginable shape

The hurt and the pain

Again and again

Oh, please, God have mercy!

Oh, please, let it end!

And he finally stops

And heads for the door

While I lay there motionless

Sprawled on the floor

My name is Tiffany

I am three,

Tonight my daddy

Murdered me.

-8-8-8-

Her name was Auroura

She was only five

This is what happened

When she was alive

Her dad was a drunk

Her mom was an addict

Her parents kept her

Locked in an attic

Her only friend

was a little toy bear

It was old and worn out

And had patches of hair

She always talked to it

When no one's around

She lays there and hugs it

Not a peep of sound

Until her parents
unlock the door

Some more and more pain

She'll have to endure

A bruise on her leg

A scar on her face

Why would she be

In such a horrible place?

But she grabs her bear

And softly cries

She loves her parents

But they want her to die

She sits in the corner

Quiet but thinking,”God, why?

Why is
my life always sinking?"

Such a bad life

For a sad little kid

She'd get beaten and beaten

For anything she did

Then one night

Her mom came home high

The poor child was hit and slapped

As hours went by

Then her mom suddenly

Grabbed for a blade

It was sharp and pointy

One that she made

She thrusted the blade

Right in her chest,

”You deserve to die

You worthless pest!"

The mom walked out

Leaving the girl slowly dying.

She grabbed her bear

And again started crying

Police showed up

At the small little house

They quickly barged in

Everything was as quiet as a mouse

One officer slowly

Opened a door

To find the sad little girl

Lying on the floor

It must have been bad

To go through so much harm

But at least she died

With her best friend in her arms.

STOP CHILD ABUSE NOW!!

Some Favorite Quotes:

"Men who can subsist on raw corn can never be whipped." -Lewis Armistead

"Why do men fight who were born to be brothers?" - James Longstreet

"Duty is the most sublime word in our language. Do your duty in all things. You cannot do more. You should never wish to do less." - Robert. E. Lee

"I hope to live long enough to see my surviving comrades march side by side with the Union veterans along Pennsylvania Avenue, and then I will die happy." - James Longstreet

"In great deeds something abides." - Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain

"The power of noble deeds is to be preserved and passed on to the future." -Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain

"Give them the cold steel, boys!" -Lewis Armistead

"Let them call me rebel and welcome, for I should suffer the miseries of devils if I make a whore of my soul." - Thomas Paine

"When you are at the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on." - Theodore Roosevelt

"In war, the moral is to the physical as three is to one." - Napoleon Bonaparte

"Tell my mother I did not die a coward." - Sgt. George Washington Buck, at Gettysburg.

"Justice. Fight for it." - TheOperationBlackout, on YouTube

"That day is thrust upon us. As it was thrust upon our ancestors. The Lincoln administration required us to raise three regiments. Tell them we have done so!" - Gen. Stonewall Jackson, Gods and Generals.

"If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever." - Winnie the Pooh

"The Rebel Flag, Is simply a battle flag, nothing else, but stereotypes have turned that flag into a symbol of racism, which is not right. Those people with the flag put up, that is their right. Look at the KKK flag, that flag is a symbol is racism and hate, not the Confederate flag." -Movieman88773 on YouTube

"Far as I see it, we need every man who can fight and even if your name's not Jackson Dillon, you can at least handle a damn rifle. I ain't askin' you your real name or who you are. I'm askin' you to be a soldier." – Sgt. Ben Axton, a character in our Civil War RPG, to Rose, aka 'Jackson' Dillon at the Battle of the Wilderness.

"I'm not given to religious philosophy as you are, sir. But I remember the Norse mythology. Perhaps our Heaven, our Valhalla, will be just that, a warrior's heaven, where we will march and fight forever, and at dusk the dead will rise to feast together, friend and foe, throughout the night until the coming of the next day's battle." – Lt. Gen. James Longstreet, speaking to General Robert E. Lee, "Grant Comes East," by Newt Gingrich.

"Aliit ori'shya tal'din."
"What's that mean?"
"Family is more than bloodline. Meaning that families are about who raises and cares for you, not who your birth parents are. Or, put another way – your real relatives can treat you worse than chakaaryc strangers." – Mirta Gev and Jaina Solo, "Revelation," by Karen Traviss.

“Time was when Mando’ade rode war droids into deep space, no fancy hulls, raw vacuum that far from your shebs. That’s how we won an empire. You going soft or something, Car’ika?”
“Oh, I know, we were tough then. We’d go two weeks without breathing and half a dead pygmy borrat was enough to feed a whole clan for a week. If any of our babies couldn’t lift a beskad by the time they were weaned, we’d harden ‘em up by catching them a full-grown Trandoshan and making ‘em kill it with their pacifier and eat it raw. Ah, those were the days. (belches) Pardon me. We’re just too cultured and sensitive now, you know.” – Ram Zerimar and Baltan Carid, “Revelation,” by Karen Traviss.

...if you've bought all the Devil's Den and Little Round Top guides, found all the "hidden" monuments, know the name "Tipton," have found the Guardshack base, the Oates Boulder, and know that the Left Flanker for the 20th Maine is NOT the original!
