When Children Cry

When Children Cry

thunderous rain shall drench the ground
followed by angry bolts of lightening
striking out in tantrumous rage
warnings we are too blind to heed

rockets explode in mid air
as nation rises against nation
a blood stained earth trembles
releasing gases from its placenta

devil's torment hideous lost souls
teasing parched throats with fluid rhetoric
saturated loins of perversion
seek medical influence for pleasure

playgrounds become tainted on arsenic soil
as tears spill upon thy milky breast
lost in the canal of innocence
is the philosophy of life

When Children Cry

Bob Shank-June 9th, 2007
