Haiku?

FGM
Horrific, makes girls scream, nightmarish dream
Haraam!

***

*FGM: Female Genital Mutilation, still widely practiced in many parts of the world, including in my own country, Ethiopia, which has made impressive strides in fighting against it, and the fight continues until the various communities completely ban it.
*Haraam: forbidden, or a shameful act (in Arabic).

    1. Thank you for your kind comment! Yes, this sad topic needs to be talked and written about and fought against, for it to become a Haraam, a history but not a continues realty for girls around the world.
