Poetry: 911- War and Innocence

This is man’s work
the killing of innocent people
Crimes in the name of God

The dust and fire rise up swirling
in uncontrolled and unleashed fury
as our world slides down
into nothingness
with graceful and horrifying beauty

Screams and cries for help and running feet
Is the music we die by

It echoes through the ages
as it did in Dresden,
and London,
and Tokyo,
and Nagasaki,
and Hiroshima

The killing of innocent people
Crimes in the name of God

God does not witness or know this world

The killing of innocent people
This is man’s work
