Ashamed We Stand

The Devils of pain came hurtling through the air hissing like whistles of death

Unbiased in their monstrosity and impartial in their target

Exploding themselves at the feet of kindergarten kids and disintegrating into shrapnel’s of fire in an oncology ward

Meanwhile an impotent world stands like an ensemble of adorned mannequins

Hands and tongue firmly tied, but when organising futile deliberation and spouting meaningless lip service

Making an entire humanity bow its head in despicable shame

Dangerous tanks; Destroyed Conscience; Demolished Hope;

DIRE times

(Word Count: 85)
