Atrocity


Sudden shock, burst of flame.
Bodies flying, bloody rain.

Wails of living and dying,
Fill the space.

Of the stun brained,
Human race.

Smoke, dust, mangled gore,
Vaguely resembles just before.

Bloody body parts still intact,
Rush to hospital, put them back.

But will they ever be the same,
After feeling the bloody rain?

Who would do such a thing?
Those who fear the despotsí reign?

Only those with minds turned cold,
Would be so ignorant, so bold.

To unleash an atrocity like this,
On the innocent flock in fold.

So apropos for today's Syria atrocity. Graphic, yet humble in its plea to ignore the grizzly aspect and consider the vast mind set that supports such behavior, i.e., Russia and China. Thank you for a passionate and loving reminder of the sanctity of life.

Such power in words, and so sadly true! Selfish Pride, and uncaring hearts, cause so much pain and destruction!
Reviewed by J. Pajot 3/14/2004
A sadly moving write, Ron. It would seem our technology has given those demented and homocidal zealots on all sides the ability to wreak savage havoc on us all. With hopes and wishes that our species might yet find its true path...and with personal prayers for you, sir, that some Light may shine upon the challenges this life has cast your way. Bright blessings to you,

Jim.

Excellent write Ronald! The real atrocity is in that old adage
"Mans inhumanity to man!" We are our own worst enemy...

Unfortunately it still rains. None of us will ever be able to put that day far from our minds. It will be passed down through history just like Pearl Harbor was/is. It was such a shock to all of us that we relive it daily in our minds and as we sleep.
It does take a cold heart and deadly conscience to do something like this.
It was a sad day, and still is. Thank you for sharing your heart Ronald. Lisa

Ronald none of us will ever be the same..
and the fear we have now that it will
be done again as they continue to
threaten us..God help us all...This is
tremendous writing with much feeling
and sorrow...floria
