Syria 8 - Sonnet For Secular Odds - Poem by Danny Draper
Arab Spring lanced all deeper scars
Populace wounded, festered an abyss
Violated a prophets' sacred words
Sacrificing innocents to the void
Mortally sure they cling to four and six
Each sahih, hasan the other da'if,
Leaping headlong to oblivion,
Will peace await each in the one heaven?
Outsiders with self interests invest
Agitate a transect beyond borders
Grinding corpses and homes 'to rancid mire
Stripping humanity with each carcass
Watchers seek odds for democracy, while
Sides seek holly superiority.
