Watching through the lens of a camera
In the comfort of home or a presidential office
Buildings gutted, fogs of dust rising high into the air
Eerie screams, medics rushing hither and thither
Hospitals unable to cope with broken bodies
Street after street showing dead being covered over
Broken children crying out for loved ones
Brutalised bodies lying not just in their own blood
Soldiers and civilian alike bodies rent apart
Scattered like rag dolls all in the name of WAR
Will common sense ever prevail?
