WHOSE CHILDREN ARE THESE? by Gearld Barrax.

Protect with burlap from the cold
Cabin. Fear and rage make him tremble
For them; for himself, shame
That he can do no more
Than die for them
For no certain purpose. He heard
About a woman, Margaret garner,

Of hers to keep them from being taken
Back; killed herself
After the others were taken back
Anyway. So she saved
Two.
