Evacuation

by Venky

The marriage alas was one of pure convenience

Dollars were the order of the arrangement, no pretense

When the time came to desert, the loved were became pre-loved

Mercilessly and heartlessly out of the way they were shoved

The barbaric enemy at the gates was no concern anymore

Left to their wretched fates, the abandoned’ s solace was suffering galore

Imagine if you can

For a minute you as an Afghan

wk 223 pre-loved

(Word Count: 71)
