women being slaved

poor victims of sex trade

repeatedly raped

in those small stinking rooms

beautiful curtains

elegantly hiding

the ugly truth

  1. Lucio Battisti once sung a song called ‘Il nostro caro angelo’
    ( our dear angel )

    The looking-glass the skylarks
    loved now flashes rainbows uselessly on the ground
    like those good-time girls who come in the night
    to sell to you a merry basket of love,
    but inside no love’s found!

    I perticularly like the phrase … to sell a basket of love, but inside no love is found!
    If you are looking for love …
    Its another place to be found … not there.
