recess is over

as the school bell rings
children are shrieking with glee

    recess is over.

          a sudden rain of bombs leaves
          the playground deathly silent

    Thinking of the thousands of Syrian children that are dead when I read this one...and humanitarian aid was all that could be provided...it angers me to no end!!...I love this poem and the sudden shift at the end...fabulous double word play with "leaves." Spectacular rewording of Catie's work. Both of u are such amazing poets!! Luv, gwendolen
