'Aftermath'...


Its weird only when its a cry;
Its mild and a norm to be without a fright;
cataclysmic experiences bury forever plight;
Unexpected predicaments to contend with all the remain might;
weirdness conceived...

Sojourn in the land of fear;
Cheap commodities of fright for sale;
what a journey to embark on by this new itinerant!
Lucid variations of harmonious feeling of fear;
pale pedestrians sail in their pairs...

A new life of charade for the fear of fear;
recurring encasulation of the reason for the tear;
the fear to play;
even to pray;
All squadron withdraw, retreat and hide with personalities of lesser fear;
still, no not one, that is not borne with this same fear.

This poem is for all who have been affected by war, directly or indirectly. Like J.P. Clark has posited, we are all casualities of war; ' we are all casualties; all sagging as are the cases celebrated for kwashiorko; the unforeseen camp follower of not just our war.'

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,
