Abba Sigh - Poem by Buxton Shippy

In the midst of terror
Dry bones sing
Earth vomits
Innocent blood shed
Creation shudder

Heart stained
Where greed left its mark
Human predators multiplied
Canibalism on the rise
With eyes open
Compassion in a casket died

In the midst of terror
Rivers flow
Babies cry
Angels spit
The wicked man dread
Abba sigh

Time is tense
Air is stiff
Lungs collaspse
Hold on!
Hold on tight!
