[I once was a child am a child]

A new poem

by Victoria Chang
I once was a child am a child am someone’s child not my mother’s not
my father’s the boss gave us special treatment treatment for something

special a lollipop or a sticker glitter from the toy box the better we did
the better the prize one year everyone was fired everyone fired but me

We hope you enjoy this excerpt.
