Splashed!

Just a great day in the big city

a treat for the couple

their one annual visit was here

a tour of historic sites

look around the stores a show

happy together toe to toe!

 

Busy hustle and bustle of people

minding their own business

walking enjoying the atmosphere

heard a scooter close by

something wet on their heads fell

and life became a living hell!

 

Seconds later the pain unbearable

as flesh began to burn

everyone realised both splashed

with a corrosive liquid

was another abhorrent acid attack

time they could not backtrack!

 

From nowhere water was handed

to passersby who helped

pouring water on to damaged skin

trying to dilute the substance

ease the suffering of the innocence

with tender touch did commence!

 

The Perpetrators long gone from scene

utter disbelief a savage act

in a city centre street made no sense

or perception of their mentality

soon paramedics were there attending

the search on for those offending!

 

Both in hospital wounds being assessed

to see extent of tissue damage

as doctors frantically fought to minimise

the long term consequences

of physical restrictions to future living

mentally it would be unforgiving!

 

Such a despicable act is on the increase

mans cruelty knows no bounds

but what has changed over centuries

those just wanting to live

in peace and harmony wanting unity

without malice in every community!

 

But always those who are intent on hate

inflicting endless misery

not caring for anybody but themselves

where mercy does not exist

will take at any cost to make profit

for humanity does not give a shit!

 

Amongst us they roam devils in human form!

Remember!

What has changed over the many centuries

brave men and women volunteer

to serve and fight for their countries in wars

thrust into those endless conflicts

giving their lives souls and many body parts

there after breaking families hearts!

 

Peace just a word that has been used to entice

those with that pride to protect

the humanity that they are each a small part

who are willing to suffer and die

through shocking hardships and real brutality

yet can man change his mentality?

 

While those who instigate plans profit stay safe

and weapons from nations kill

those they say their freedom fight to protect

lines are blurred who is the enemy

millions continue to be eliminated on the front line

the end to the butchery no sign!

 

Another year has come when we remember them

the fallen graves spread over the fields

some its only a name many there is no name at all

giving the ultimate sacrifice their lives

yet nothing changes the unrest continues to grow

the bloodshed ever onward’s doth flow!

 

I remember those who believed in their loyalty

without question went with pride

hopefully bringing everlasting peace to humanity

through their armed resistance

yet still wait for that moment of world unity

that final end to so much hostility!

 

In my humility stand silently to remember the fallen!
