Stark!

Stark extending into the distance

to those whose fingers

clenched it in forlorn desperation

the fence the barrier

to an existence with such brutality

an endless living misery

imprisoned within their homeland

any hope of freedom banned!

 

Children growing up with real hate

watching their people die

the only weapons stones and faith

ever waiting for justice

as the world viewed the brutality

seemingly unable to stop

the genocide escalating within

their plight a hidden sin!

 

From behind the fence blank faces

observed their persecutors

with steely determination and fire

never to submit or surrender

of their rightful country nor culture

to any corrupt oppressors

proud to stand up to be counted

no matter the threats mounted!

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!
