A story I saw in the media that broke my heart.

Parents Post Baby For Sale On E-Bay

by earthlybeing

Just when I think I have heard it all,
Something comes along that does appall.
Checking my email I saw a report,
Of a crime that landed two parents in court.

They listed their baby for auction on EBay!
I was left in shock and great dismay.
How could parents do such a thing,
Now the scales of Justice must swing.

They said it was a joke but it is not funny,
They listed serious bids only, for money.
It makes my stomach churn to know,
That people would treat their baby so.

This child deserves much more,
Needs to be with someone who will adore.
As for the parents I hope justice is served,
May they get the max sentence that they deserve.
