watching the nightly news from Syria
The grocer still smiles at the family Passing by his counter, owl-eyed at the Fresh food display, Shot down in the streets defending freedom, While shareholders measure outcomes. In the forest, a doe watches her fawn nibble Plant growth- O Holy God, save our souls! Soldiers march in protest- Lance the lies! walk the tallgrass, Finding peace- Finding Peace 08/18/11
