About: Female genital mutilation

At this point of life,
There is no room to ponder,
The ritual that is in-between my legs!

The cutting point,
Hurts, stimulating another sad musing,
And the job poorly done,
Is left to bleed, and rest, or live and die.

This is my body...
Strewn on a table cloth.
Somehow, I just died.
