I Must Not Forget

I Must Not Forget

A crack in the sky
Men woman and children demonized
Axes, Machetes… clenched the street
Cries; the crushing sounds of skulls from all ways you look
The unspoken was taking place:

She is accustomed to it, a voice from a New York said
Friends; neighbours stand and look, to say the least
Blameless souls broken down by rod and by rood
Hacked off at a yes or a no
Blue helmets, without arms, stand idly
as blood rust, and de-colored in soil

To this, my heart recoils from the thought of your agony
my soul torn by this rage inside
How was it possible that I was here, alive
when next door a carnival of carnage was taking place!
