Two Mothers Poem by Colin Ian Jeffery

Two Mothers

Rating: 5.0

Israeli and Palestine conflict

Prostrate with grief
Rachel weeps for a dead son
Killed by a suicide bomber.

Prostrate with grief
Sarah weeps for a dead son - -the suicide bomber
Who believed blood would set his people free.

Blood begets blood
Reprisal follows reprisal.
But there is no honour in death
Only tears of mothers for dead children.

James B. Earley 20 July 2008

Another casualty of Man's inhumanity to Man! Can harmony be so difficult? Excellent composition.

can't even come up with a worthy comment. Anyone who loses a child falls to the ground with their tears. Thanks for this one.

The best sauces are made through a process of reduction and I think the best poems also. You have defined the futility of a seemingly intractable conflict wonderfully.
