Invisible Tears - Poem by willow moon pearce

Once again confusion reigns
' Thou shalt not kill '
But it is seperated
By the Military
And the 'policy ' makers.

When they decide to act
Women, children and old men die
Suffering and death becomes normal
Something for the media to exploit
Our new definitions name it all
Collateral damage, friendly fire

It all boils down to one thing
A flag covered coffin ready for all the drama
And the decimated foriegn family
Forgotten.
