Kosovo Refugee - Poem by ENOCH JOHN

Ka Plomb! Ka Plomb! Ka Plomb!
I hear the bombs drop
I only wish they'd stop.

Ka Plomb! Ka Plomb! Ka Plomb!
I feel the pain and the hurt
While the warring factions gloat.

Ka Plomb! Ka Plomb! Ka Plomb!
These flying machines of stealth
Built by Nato's great wealth.

Ka Plomb! Ka Plomb! Ka Plomb!
Machines that fly in the night
I can barely hide my fright.

Ka Plomb! Ka Plomb! Ka Plomb!
I hear the terrifying screams
Of children awakened from their dreams

Ka Plomb! Ka Plomb! Ka Plomb!
I am ragged and worn
I wish I were never born.

Ka Plomb! Ka Plomb! Ka Plomb!
I am hungry and depressed
We are a people oppressed.

Ka Plomb! Ka Plomb! Ka Plomb!
Milosevic will never understand
Until we are buried under the sand.
