Each year, Foreign males visit Thailand, Bali and other places, looking for a "Good Time?"
At least the Phillipines has Introduced the Death Penalty.

Shame! Shame! Shame!

She stands alone in a Bangkok street
Brilliant smile lights up her face.
Clothes revealing and high heeled feet,
She jealously guards her special place.

The foreign tourists pass her by.
She smiles at each and every one.
Most ignore her, she is Thai.
She lifts her skirt, to attract the one.

He comes and whispers in her ear.
She smiles, tries harder not to cry
She steels herself not showing fear.
She goes with him with heavy sigh.

Her Mother sold her, she was only nine.
Needed the money to run the farm
Girls were a burden, a waste of time.
To the city taken, sold into harm.

Now at twelve she walks the street
Brothel slave, phony looks, painted smiles.
Skimpy clothes and high heeled feet.
Each night sold, to foreign Paedophiles

This is sad, and very painful. My heart goes out to the girl.

The shame lies with the western nations
who forbid such thinfs at home but do not
hold their citizens responcible for their
actions in another country

This is dramatically sad. One wants to take these children and protect them from their forced fate. When I read these things it makes me so glad and relieved I was born in America where if this stuff happens it isn't looked upon as a way of life.
These are my first tears of the day. Well penned. Lisa
