Collateral Damage


Today,
I saw a dad
On CNN
He had lost
Not one
But
Both of
His dear sons
Over… there
And I
Wondered
When will
Our world
Have the heart
To
Cry
For
Them

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,
