Ceasefire?

 

Will you fire your deadly weapons

As the cruelty merely deepens

Will you weep for a lost future

As the surgeons try to suture

A country smashed to pieces

While compassion just decreases

We, who helpless watch and wait

but the bombs cease to abate

Just the silence as the heartbeats drum no more

And the final desecrated body hits the floor

    Lovely, moving piece, Story Worm. It applies to many places in the world today – the Rohinja people haunt me. Think you should submit it in a poetry competition…..

      Such a good poem. Comparing the macro and micro elements of warfare – so sad, poignant. I agree with Marian.
