The Feud



Bow-twangs snap
reverberate through the night,
arrows swish and
slither death in random flight:
none are safe

children
encumbered with confusion condone
the carnage,  
assuming  just retribution is to thoroughly atone:
a village haven salutes
unseen tips of pain, loss, and foul play,
history's didactic recurrence
decimates mortals and flay
to coerce for imagined gain…
