craved cruelty

Does
-every
mouse

whose
mother
pushed
them
out of
the nest
too early

mistake
a predators
insides,

[playing
with them,

consuming
them,

breaking
them down]

for a
loving
embrace?

half dead;

laid
[devoured]

in half,

yet
still

-[barely]
living

they
proclaim,

“how can
you
blame
the lioness
for
-My state?

it is
only
in her
nature
.”

  1. I got the analogy. John Bowlby who proposed the attachment theory in children , also said there were bad mothers. Not much can be done about this , children realize it as adults , by then all damage is done. Re victimization is common.
