Rebel Nation

Destructively happy as famous

Nations die, dirty and lifeless.

The blade slammed down and she lay –

Hot water flowing –

The tragedy of a nation rising.


Red stained white as children

Throughout the world fled.

A reality shattered

As life-long bombs battered

Decaying dirt and muck.


It leaked into rusty water –

For those who died unfed, unwed –

While friends drank holy water

In memory of their lost Father.


Her glazed eyes reflected

Only statues falling,

Breaking; all hearts quaking

As people laughed and smiled.
