A City

By | 30 June 2008

Children's laughter and their mothers'

gossip was returning to the market place

after years of random kidnappings,

suicide bombings and sniper attacks

but caveman needs evolved into beliefs

too powerful to remain at peace:

an invisible guide born in a dream vision,

delivered a set of laws by voices

and tribal hallucination so loving death

was the rock and a compendium of dogma

and cruel solutions interpreted from sacred

texts bubble in the acolyte mind, and anger

makes 'terror the human form divine'. Amen.

You send your neighbours a holiday bomb.
