A Child

The boy was found, or at least most of him was, naked in the swamp, bugs picking at his dead flesh. He was missing for ten days, his parents distraught to say the least. The news media carried images of the boy in his favourite red shirt, playing his favourite game, baseball. But no sight or sound was heard from the boy until earlier today, when a hunter, who shall not be named, came across what no-one wants to come across. The area was quarantined in hopes of finding clues but none were forthcoming. The media now carries pictures of the scene wrapped in a tent like a death shroud.
