Battled!

As the young nurse battled to help the child

a bullet pieced her brain

she laid next to the traumatized youngster

as black smoke billowed

all around them as others through stones

just wanting to be left alone

many more were hit as they loudly protested

as the soldier mocked and jested!

 

As a powerful nation was intent on eliminating

a race of people they hated

no mercy for their lives or culture were given

just a cold psychotic belief

that they were simply in their way and must go

total annihilation the final aim

even with the outcry by many nations to cease

from the aggressor would find no peace!

 

Even those reporting these outrageous sights

were always in the snipers sights

the world watched seemly helpless to intervene

onward rolled the killing machine!

The Road!

Road surface was breaking up poor maintenance

along the verges much debris

where there had been many road traffic accidents

as cars passed at high-speed

with no thought of the danger that lurked ahead

where there had been many dead!

 

Sure they were protected in their metal boxes

immune from dying or injury

surrounded by safety features they charge

everything outside was unreal

the electronics efficiently executed control

but onboard computers with no soul!

 

As the surface crumbled tyres compensated

trying hard yet failing to grip

potholes evermore forming as roads failed

councils bleating they had no money

yet motorists paying large sums in fuel duty

and taxes bringing in lots of booty!

 

This is then diverted into many other projects

policing has today rapidly declined

as cars often chosen as modes of transport

increasingly used as weapons

for some they are their prefered killing machine

this disregard for life obscene!

 

Without a license insurance and any conscience

drive after drinking and drug taking

teenager racers to charge at high-speed for fun

thinking they are invincible to dying

too often in tragic circumstances lives are lost

futures hopes and dreams tossed!

 

Many drive reflecting on their attitude to life!
