At age ten Bob was taken from his mother as a neglected child and placed in Parkerville Children’s Home. Below is his poem.
to be taken as a neglected child
to be told you were going to be put some where safe
to always remember the evil man with the cane and all ways wild
this is the darkness in my dreams, the horror in my life
this place was not safe but a place of horror for this waif
