Illegal Statue

June 2, 2008
By Thu T, South Plainfield, NJ

Many people have come
To pray
To Jesus.
Others will take advantage
Of a statue.

A 61-year-old Mexican man
Gave a woman
To smuggle in a statue
To Laredo, Texas.

Police officers discovered
That this statue of Jesus
Was made of
6.6 pounds

The man was arrested.
The woman fled back to Mexico.
It was a very sad attempt
To smuggle

This poem does a really good job of explaining how bad drug trafficking has become recently; however it is very controversial in its exact meaning.

I dont really understand this poem. It could end up being kind of offensive to some people, but it shows what people will do for drugs.
