The Bomb App



Bombs are “smart “

They only target foreign skin


I’m sure it will break just a few limbs

And not see an apartment cave in


It will whistle past the Russians,

Saying hi along the way

Give reverence to the Iranians

“Get out of my way “


Bombs are “smart”

They only pinpoint the “exact foreign skin “


But when the families are laid out on a cold hard floor

The breath of life beating no more




“We will have to do better next time

Start those fighter planes”

Let it begin


And again

And again

And again

David R Mellor

Born 1964, (Liverpool, England) difficult birth, didn’t find my voice until my youth. Years of thinking I was nobody and treated as such. However, hit the paper papering over the scars. Found understanding and belief through words. I have been published and performed widely from the BBC, The Tate, galleries and pubs and everything in between.

My poems are autobiographical, others topical and several my take on life. Hope you enjoy reading as much as I have enjoyed writing. Please feel free to share your thoughts on links below.
