Poem A tattered peace

Poem: A tattered peace

 

 

A tattered peace... in the Middle East
An Arab peace summit... as the region plummets
Another suicide bomber... succeeded in his mission
Retaliation is certain... from the Israelis' curtain

 

...Indeed a perpetual war, where tomorrow becomes more uncertain
No cease-fire... no living together

A situation destined to fuel devastation

 

World stability at risk...
Resolution, world leaders seek brisk
A war with no end... solutions pretend

 

A peace that never was...
Hatred cling like a still stone gathering moss
Somewhere, some mothers to be in labor...
Future soldiers wait

 

Perhaps one day a savior...
To save us all,
Before it's too late...

 

A tattered peace... a temporary feast
Finding common ground...
Hatred to defeat!
