Child Protection Poem

by Diana Lee

Posted September 16, 2006

For Vasudeva datta prabhu,
Two verses from my own "sastra":

A wasp-nest in your garden and a small child
What to do, one thinks?
what's more important, wasps in the wild
or a child without hundreds of deadly stings?

Your child will be charmed that no matter what
You protect him from all harm
a book may say this or that
but life's more dear then karm'
