The marching boots,
The guns, the bayonets,
Flapping flags,
Clenched fists,
Empty squares,
The siren wails.

journey_to_hades_400_01The bomb blows
And death throes;
Bombed churches,
Trains, buses and
The refugees
Who drown
At sea.

The debts, dollars
And petrol dollars,
The bleached coral
In warming oceans,
The stand-off in
The South China Sea,
The hungry children
Crouched in doorways
On street corners
In cities around
The world considering
Their future,
Searching for humanity
In the angry
Hate-filled faces
Of the wise.
