Nursing her Rhymes

July 14, 2010

Research (for example, this study in The Lancet) shows that chances for sex-selective abortion rise significantly in those families that already have one or two female children. Below is a short verse that can be considered as penned at an ultrasonography diagnostic center/clinic somewhere in India.

A    B    C    D    E    F    G
“Congratulations! The scan shows a baby-G!” 🙂
H    I    J    K    L    M    N    O    P
“Oh no! We were hoping this time a boy it would be 😦
Q     R     S
Such a mess!
T     U    V
We can’t have three.”
W     X     Y    and    Z
And thus countdown begins for something  sleazy.

ONE    TWO
She buckles her shoe
THREE     FOUR
Knocks on the door
FIVE     SIX
Feeling the fetus’ kicks
SEVEN     EIGHT
She hopes ’tis not too late
NINE     TEN
They have done it again!
