Iraq's Holocaust

Fathers are beaten, crucified,
in vicious murder, multiplied;
we dare not be ambivalent.
Have mercy, Lord, omnipotent.

Mothers tortured, gang raped and killed
by cruel butchers, hate distilled;
the mute images, eloquent.
Have mercy, Lord, omnipotent.

Headless children no more know play;
their little heads on pikes displayed;
the slaughter of the innocent.
Have mercy, Lord, omnipotent.

Heinous, evil atrocities,
religious animosities;
the nations posture, impotent.
Have mercy, Lord, omnipotent.

On mountaintop, fearing the worst,
the entire world should give aid first;
so fearful of entanglement.
Have mercy, Lord, omnipotent.

Another holocaust witnessed,
people remain anonymous;
the world will not be innocent.
Have mercy, Lord, omnipotent.

    Yes, have mercy Lord Indeed Faye. This is the sad reality of this world today. The kind of reality that makes the devil dance and God cry... Thanks Faye for sharing the important piece with us today. Have a beautiful week ahead. Love Gail

    wow, very powerful writing. In a favorite style of mine, the kyrielle. This kind of form is perfect for getting across messages like this one to touch our hearts and make us feel. Good one for the not so innocent world.
