 Poems for Lovers and Sinners

Death Place

  A quiet calm overlaps the tent town

  Serenading a mystic silence

  Which as the early dawn arrives

  Is covered in a white mist

  Resembling a Death Shroud -

  Babies are waking with cries of hunger

  No food or Mother's milk...

  To lavish upon these chapped lips and swollen bellies

  Where's the water to quench their thirst?

  Tears have disappeared - they've forgotten how to cry!

  In this baking heat and scorching place people ask WHY?

  No one sings or smiles in this Death place

  They have a distant stare of agony belonging to their eyes

  Tears have dried up, no one cries anymore

  At the height of the sun the rebels appear

  Raping and taking away the young girls

  Killing and maiming the old

  Burning babies for no reason...FUN!

  While we in the West sit back...and
  Moan about our mundane lifestyle
  Spare a thought for these people

     It's happening -Now
  Maybe we should do more?

  I doubt things will ever change...
