Cleat Booths

 

Listen! Listen!

Heed the sounds tormenting

Our Grandparents

Carried in the Wind

Of echoing Cleat Booths

Pounding Upon cobbler stones

AS They Huddled

In uttered fear.

Yes, thankfully, those terrible days are gone for most. Today, the killers come far more swiftly and often, silently until they are upon us and that fear comes again as they beat down the doors or blow the building we are hiding in to rubble.

A chilling reminder.

Frightening! My son just got back from Poland and he visited a lot of War Memorials while there.....I can hear the soldiers retreating footsteps as they huddle in fear.....well penned, William...very powerful writing...
