The boots moved slowly,
Crunching sun-baked clay.
A hazy wind down alleyways,
It moves with moans 
Then whistles softly,
Quickly gone.

A child stands in a doorway
Pulling something from his robe.
He keys in certain numbers, 
Only doing as he's told.

He waits, then hears a bomb
As it explodes.
A helmet lands and bounces
Near his feet.
He shrugs. then merges with a
crowded street.

    Hi, Fred.....I need to study this sight. I've never been able to locate any mail, other than the comments, like this one. I need to learn my way around. I've been spending most PC time copy pasting the 200 poems still left on another site, before I loose them. Thanks for informing me, Fred. Your friend,......Gene
