Poetry: Syria – we see you

DSC00266

Syria – we see you

Violent
Explosive
Displaced and traumatised
Clinical
Chemical
Proud and catastrophic
Fatherland
Motherland
Raw, cauterised homeland

Citizen
President
Voice of America
Cerebral
Powerful
Soul wearied with lost lives
Expected
Berated
Caught by the crucible

Opposites
Magnetised
Twisted by nationhood

We watch, horrified, through a screen –
children stretchered into limbo ….
then click on with our daily lives.
