Raped by man called father,
Went to prison for it,
State of Iowa allowed him to adopt one more to brutalize!
Head and owner of Wildlife sanctuary here in Iowa has saved hundreds,
Scared at night,
Been married over thirty-five years,
Five children their mom,
Still scared of noises,
Saves animals All animals!
Classy gentle spirit,
Right here in Iowa,
Long time sufferer of childhood trauma,
A hero of this out lesbian Iowan poet,
She too a poet,
Many things conveyed in few words,
