Pacifist suicide bomber

Today a
pacifist suicide bomber
blew himself up in a crowded market square.

51 civilians were killed and eye-witnesses
reported that hundreds more were injured.

There are currently 37 people in hospital in a critical condition,
a defence ministry spokesman said.

See how the poem is mightier than the bomb?

See how I achieved as much as you did
without actually having to kill anyone?

(we both achieved nothing)

Another powerful anti-war/anti-violence poem. There can never be enough of 'em. Nicely penned.

I can and will only specke fore my self . I have sent some of my relevant poems ( they are on the bay) to a friend the feed back I have had is they are being well reseved. Poetry can and dos make a difference. My freind has sent me poems written by poets of my freinds country some resent some of long long ago. Who did not goo in fore souaside bombing. One was shot affter bewing torcherd , but was defiant at his trile , he never lost his defiance. His poerty lives on. Very much apart of what is going on. The poet may die , but his and her poetry lives on in all it's power.
