Road taken to stop slavery....

White scrub dress and a
Stethoscope wrapped around
her neck,
floating around the hospital like a fairy...

Around a row of beds appearing
like a never ending deck,
She looked like a "Holy Mary."....

Administering liquids, sup, and

Massaging bony prominences,

Giving klystirs, enemas, and

You will work for us FOR FREE
"day and night"
in a row....

They gave her tons of letters to sign,
and prepare for sale the next day,,,
her energy was suppose to be also in the line,
with queens signature in the clay.

You will be monitored and supervised
under restriction....

And if You resist
we will frame you
and accuse you of a

And if You attempt to complain about
your life in the mail...

We will make sure that you end up
on probation
or even jail...

Since "Your success is our

Really ?


Next thing she was on CP 42 h. Toronto, NYC times,
CNN, BBC...making sure that she was getting
a job of her choice and salary, you BET...
