Poem: And The Bombs Fly


And the bombs fly

While innocents die

You throw the first stone

Or was it them?

Or does it matter?

And the blood flows

And the bombs fly

While innocents die

And babies burn

In mother’s arms

Each maintain arms

To protect the  strip

Who are you protecting?

While the bombs fly

And innocents die

And mothers cry

You statesmen state

And speak of hate

From far away

While  people live

And the bombs fly

And innocents die

Who stops first?

One hundred more?

Useless sacrifice

While the bombs still fly

And more still die

Pride and  past kill

It’s a bitter pill

The innocents swallow whole

When will you see?

Corpses and bodies and death

Pour from the bomb

Sacrificial lambs to slaughter

For your game

You will never win

This game

As the bombs fly

And innocents die

And mothers cry

Humanity is breaking

Unless

Unless

The slaughter stops

And you remember

We were all one once
