A protest poem written in response to the slaughter in Syria.

 

‘Children of Homs’
 
Humanity is broken in Syria,
Despair is burying them deep
The lost little children in Homs,
Crying with fear as we sleep
 
No sunlight, no food, nor joy,
Shattered and shelled all around
Huddled and weeping together,
Living like rats underground
 
Hope taking flight as they cry,
Ground into dust their fate
Blown like flies in the sun,
Dying on a carcass of a state
 
Voices in valleys of bodies,
Souls that lies slain and burned
Forests of forms ticked and listed
Marked out for inaction returned
 
Victims of greed and oppression,
Slaves to retention of power
Suffer the little children,
By month, by day and by hour
 
By
Mary Cecil

Thank you for lending your pen to this very serious situation. For all the atrocities being committed, I believe that the people will win in the end over oppression.

If there was ever a vailid reason for war and soldiers from peacekeeping nations to enter a country this to me is a time. When children suffer because of oppresors then it is time for civilized countries to use force if necessary to put an end to it so no child has to go to bed in fear and hunger.
