A few week’s ago I posted a poem that was based on Suzanne Vega’s “Luka” entitled “Luka II”. This is a follow up to that poem. The rhyming is a bit forced, but I think it’s just as good as the prior poem, though the rhythm is different. Not much more to say about that.
This poem was inspired by the song “My Name is Luka” by Suzanne Vega. So that puts it somewhere in or after 1987. At the time my Mom was working in the Child Protective Services and that was probably a bit of influence as well. If you are familiar with the song, you know it’s about child abuse.
