LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Speaking (again) for little babies

This letter from a lady in Darlington was printed in the Florence Morning News on Jan. 19, 1993. I hope she does not mind it being printed again.

Speaking for little babies

I want to speak for the little babies who are too young to speak or cry.

Too Young to Cry

They say I am not a baby 'cause I inside my ma.

But if she didn't want me, why did she fool with pa?

Now if I am not a baby, I guess the reason's why

My mama doesn't want me 'cause I'm too young to cry.

They're sending food to babies who live across the sea.

My ma has even sent some.

Why can't she think of me?

There's got to be a reason.

Oh, mama, tell me why.

If I'm not a baby,

Why did I want to cry?

I hear the doctor coming

And soon I'll be a wad

Of trash thrown in the garbage.

Then I'll be back with God.

He knows that I'm a baby,

And he will tell me why

My mama didn't love me

When I was too young to cry.

Thank you lady from Darlington.

A recent letter to the editor by Jill Lewis, chairman of the board of Florence County Progress, highlighted the millions of dollars in countywide improvements funded over the past 14 years through Florence County’s penny sales tax. Ballots for the November election – already going out to voters around the county – detail a long list of important projects our county can fund if we choose on Nov. 3 to keep the penny for an additional seven years.
