Recycle of Abuse

Weak to their desires
those recyclers of abuse
are few
but mastered by
such
a communicable disease.

No discipline,
no understanding or caring for consequences.

Worming their way into
being responsible
for our innocents.

Perhaps
a teacher
scout leader
clergy

Patiently lurking through the system
and cleverly doing the right thing
until the hunger
overwhelms.

Never undone
the devastating act becomes
habit.

The polluted outcast themselves.
The embarrassed silenced are replicated quietly
over days, years, decades
and repression does what it can
but it may happen that
a trickle
of truth
makes its way out.

Destroying the dam.

Flashed in the light
of the paparazzi press
descending.
Latching onto anything quick.

Perhaps
grill the school board
undermine the association
sue the Pope

Anything other than
patiently dealing with
those point sources in
the cycle of abuse.
