Darfur

Why dies the blue sky red
Hue of a deeper dissolution
Falling from the face
The puzzle of Africa

Stains dry and brittle circle the dust
Where withers a standing grain
taunted eye of barren sticks
To black and lifeless rage
Oil oil oil black and lifless blood

Why die to plant your sickel of sun
In war the blood of children feed
A pile of small hands and feet
The surgeons knife and tyrants belly

Why die civilised world
With your blue sky
That lies above the red machete
Wasting the black hell of stenches
An oil that fills your heart

    Depressing, brooding words. But more light needs to be shed on this deep topic, that has endless angles to look at. Excellent poem; well written. Chris.
