Red, yellow, blue.
The fireworks in the sky 
Go crackle boom-
And mother-
Like a child,
To her room-
For the sounds 
Remind her of
Shootings in Beirut
Bombings in Batroun
Other mothers sobbing over their
Children’s tombs
The fireworks in the sky
Go crackle boom-
And the city celebrates
As my mother’s
Cold heart
(Iced with fiery war-)
Thaws with gloom.
