Poem #7-2011

Buzz's Horses

Suicide bombers
strew body parts
in every direction

Parents beat a child mercilessly
make her eat dog feces
and lock her in a trunk to suffocate

"Soldiers" rape anything female
regardless of age and then mutilate
their vaginas with bayonets

Thousands of refugees
huddle together in a foreign country
waiting to die of hunger

A man goes on a rampage
killing 76 fellow humans
because he disagrees with their politics

Politicians play chicken with the economy
because of one party’s obsessive
hatred of a non-white President

All this and more
and over in neighbor Buzz’s corral
the horses aren’t bothered at all
