.killing Takes No Reprieve Poem by Linda Moore

.killing Takes No Reprieve

Rating: 2.9

Singing voices of children full of glee
Stacked high, toys under a Christmas tree
The Family's here, those far and near
Glasses are raised in toast and cheer

Huddled in a darken room children cry
As fire explodes and bullets fly
A Family for their Loved one grieves
For killing and War takes no reprieves

A very moving poem, Linda. Two opposite extremes on what should be a joyous day for all. A very sad fact of life. Best wishes for a great new year. Richard

cleverly ironic...war and killing goes on everyday, no matter if it's Christmas, New Year, or any other holiday...pain and death give no mercy... Leslie Ching
