Donal Mahoney- A Poem

True Story on the Morning News

This just in.
In metro St. Louis last night
a woman gave birth to a boy 
in the bathroom of her 
second-floor apartment.
The mother wrapped 
the child in a towel
and threw him 
out the window.
It was death on impact.
Officials this morning
are trying to decide 
whether to charge 
the mother with murder.
Some believe she's mentally ill
or was under the influence.
Others claim it was
late-term abortion, 
legal although 
later than usual.
If charges are brought,
the Supreme Court 
may decide the case.
Justice Kennedy 
may cast the deciding vote.
In other news this morning, 
Chubby Checker 
turned 72.

Donal Mahoney lives in St. Louis, Missouri.
