Children The Causalities Of War - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

There aint no bounty hunter
There aint no gangster gunner
This aint no mafia slaughter
This aint no alien saboteur

Scattered are causalities of war
Splattered is red blood with flaws
All over children are dying
O! What an eyesore!
Moreover who is high-flying and who is lying?
Moreover who is why-crying and who is trying?

Boom bang, boom bang
Within the noise their voices drown
Minutes ago these children sang
War has painted another ghost town

They refuse to obey
When mum and dad says
‘Don’t go out to play’
For today is just another day
When no one can foretell
Who's destined next to visit hell!

These are the deeds of partial exploitation
Fed by seedy weeds of human imagination
One side is trial by terror
Others abide with trial by error
For with reference to the violence
This human calamity speaks no sense

Broken bones and limbs lie on dusty floors
Battered offspring bodies are exposing raw
All over children are dying
O! What an eyesore!
Moreover who is high-flying and who is lying?
Moreover who is why-crying and who is trying?

Children the causalities of war
O! What an eyesore!
With so many downgrading civilisation
Each side is guilty, just guilty differently
I have now come to that realisation
