WAR

 

 

It stank of death

the blasted land

the taste of copper

under the shells

 

Green pastures lost

to everyone

to the boys who

killed each other

 

Once a child thrust

to men no time

to grow up

and mature

 

Stolen their youth

forgotten and lost

their generation

the damned

 

 

 

 

 

TWIG

 

A broken twig

is finished

no more time

in the sun

 

The carefree

warmth and

growth gone

green paling

 

Fracture that

won’t heal

without help

from a hand

 

Splice and

rejuvenate waiting

to grow

anew
