human trafficking


Human trafficking

Not in top priority list

We may not hear it often

Yet it has happened

The police should act fast on it

They mustn't wait for certain hours or days

By the time the police swing into action

The victims may have long gone

I remembered 2 cases in my area

Once a college student while waiting for her transport

She disappeared at the bus station

Nothing was heard of her since

The other was a woman

She hitch-hiked back home

She did it often after work

One day she didn't make it

It has been decades

Nothing is heard of them

Possibly presumed dead

Maybe work as slaves in foreign land

Human slaves

Hiding in shadows

In the modern world

Behind syndicates of bad faith
