{Group poem 27: Female Genital Mutilation}: A different mind-set by Hudhaifah

Weep not, wail not,
Behind the curtains, did hear the plot,

Overwhelmed by tears,
Stood with stares,
Sister in pain, helpless cried in vain.

They called it circumcision,
I retorted mutilation,
They called it dignity,
 I retorted inhumanity,
They shouted, "get out of our sight!"
Sorry sister, none couldn't hear my plight.

After a month or so, the healing no more,
After a year or so, life no more,

Finally came the regret,
To FGM, a different mind-set..
