Fan Jinghua: Chicks


Their hair is longer than most of the birds,
Except for the squab.
What they carry on the back are schoolbags,
Not symbols for angels.
So young, they've been taught to store worms.


About "chicks":
For the past two months, in Xishui County, Guizhou Province in the Southwest China, there have found dozens of government officials and middle school teachers taking teenages between 14 as prostitutes. They call them "schoolbag meimei (younger sister)", and think that the younger the cleaner. The initial trial found them guilty of "patronizing prostitutes," not of raping girls. The reason is that these schoolgirls agreed to receive money for sex, although they were trapped or forced to do so.
