2 Soldiers, BANG, DEAD


Two soldiers
No name no photo yet
Gunned down
Outside their barracks
Bang, dead.

Two woodpigeons
No name no photo ever
Gunned down
In their woodland home
Bang, dead.

Two elephants
No name no photo please
Hunted for their ivory
In their natural habitat
bang, dead

Two butterflies
No name, just photos please
Netted as specimens
In free air
Bang, dead.

Bang, dead
Bang dead
Irreplaceable jewels of life
Bang, dead
Bang, dead.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
