We read of cultures from the past
where slaves were normal, commonplace.
Today we look with different eyes,
to keep a slave would bring disgrace.
Yet people still are caught and sold,
removed from family and friends,
then bought, mistreated and abused.
For them life’s horror never ends.


Andrew Pratt (born 1948)
