Cause And Effect - Poem by Frank James Ryan

T'was the night of the storm;
Two nations stood silent;
Travailing emotions;
To it's imminent effect.
Lightning and thunder,
Frazzle clear mid-east skies;
From a desert storm.
On a hot winters night,
Ensconced in a bunker; safe from the storm;
Sits the cause .... dining on fresh humble pie.

    The storm as opposed to the quiet of the foxhole...and the bystander, eating humble pie.. Strange how compelling this is for such a short poem. (Report) Reply
