Oh, to move to Ethiopia
  Or maybe Eritrea
And if they hadn't changed the name
  I'd move to North Rhodesia

There's a bit of heaven in Pakistan
  Or the balmy life in Turkmenistan
But why move there when calls to...Read More

Inside The Matters Of Its Namesake
It could never contain these things inside, 
they amass so high –mountains of them

Whispers from the many who have ventured in,
now silent echoes heard till its rhythm stops

Weakness pays a visit now and then to interrupt
the day to day pulse,...Read More

What good are our tears?
They will not spare the dying their anguish.
What good is our concern
to a child sick of living, waiting to perish?

What good, the warm benevolence of tears
without action?
What help, the...Read More

Songstress, for Nadia Anjuman
Songstress
by Michael R. Burch
 
for Nadia Anjuman
 
Within its starkwhite ribcage, how the heart
must flutter wildly, O, and always sing
against the pressing darkness: all it knows
until at last it feels the numbing sting
of death. Then life's brief vision swiftly passes,

IN MY MINDS EYE
In my mind's contorted eye
My heart laments for our generation
And generations to come
In my mind's disgruntled eye,
I see squalor and poverty in Sudan
I see disaster, hunger,
Consuming, scavenging, rampaging
The bowels of our land
My heart weeps for the oppressed,
Displaced, and brutalized
In my...Read More

A lonely figure stands at attention
Old, feeble and walks with a cane
He patiently waits 
Despite his age would not complain.

A warm and gentle breeze blows
Where white headstone stood erect
And on this solemn occasion
He waits as they give their last respect

You know way off in the distance a mirage of blue
Nitrogen and oxygen meet wavelengths above
A sky gathering that becomes a type of scattering
Creating the effect of a canvas mistakenly blue

In Afghanistan, understand there was a young yank,
Who from that awful country President tried to yank;
From where we sat,

And do presume that this is another foolish prank.
