Inhumanity

Shock of bursting explosion
Shattered arms, flying faces
Stunned shining angel
Disbelieving observer
White wings soiled
Dripping crimson splashed
Stacking body parts
Who shall answer
Tramp in marching boots?
Cadres of olive drab
War machines, martial music
Exploding human flesh
those too young to see
mourning, nightly weeping
collateral confusion damage
injurious wounds 
bloody crown of thorns
unclean with red pain
torn, innocent kissed
at mother’s knee
all agree, never end
Generals, guns and graves.
