Ann Turner poem

"I am the pig" by Ann Turner

I am the pig
And you are the wolf
waiting at the door
to gobble me up
and chew on my bones,
then spit me out
and nobody is big enough
or fast enough
or sees enough
to keep it from

This poem relates to the book Speak because in the book Melinda Sordino was raped and nobody knew it happened and now the guy tortures her at school and nobody knows why see is the way she is.
