God Cries - Poem by T.James Becker

Soldiers
Search for cover
Enemy sites target
Clusters of hell fall from the sky
Death bombs

A plume
Of smoke rises
High into the night sky
A ball of fire explodes upward
Hells fire

Heat sears
Smoke chokes the lungs
Eyes blinded and burning
Ash falling like burning snow flakes
Screams sound

Burnt flesh
The smell of death
Wounded cry out in pain
Rescue starts, the living tended
Dead left

Complete
Devastation
As Man and nature lost
Encouraged by greed and power
God cries
