COLLATERAL DAMAGE

“It’s their fault, no it’s their fault”
It’s just like yesterday when we first heard this
Occupied and occupations
Occupants and traitors
Long lists of accusation lines
as powers do not spare the rod

In the valleys where bombardments reign
lives have been vindicated by corrupt daggers
amid primitive anger and unethical rivalry

‘It’s their fault, no it’s their fault’
Well, it’s just like yesterday when
we first heard this
Matyrs and martyrdom
Heroes and villains

Is this collateral damage or abject savagery
Before thoughts yield to this question
These are my final lines as the ink dries up
Collateral damage.
